Tangy spicy Chutney :)

As Ragi would not have much taste, it should require some spicy or tangy flavour as side dish. I saw the recipe again in Rakh's kitchen. Modified a little based on our taste. Here is the recipe.


2 tbs Gingelly Oil
1 tbs Mustard
1 tbs Jeera
1 tbs Urad dhal
2 tbs Onion Finely chopped

To Grind:

4 Red chillies
1 tbs of tightly packed Tamrind
3 Small onions
Required Salt

  • Grind the above 'to grind' ingredients using mixer. In a pan add oil and when hot add mustard, jeera, urad dal and onions
  • To it add the paste and fry till the raw smell goes off.
  • Pour 1-2 tbs of oil to the chutney if it is more spicy.
  • You can increase or decrease the chilli or tamarind based on you taste.

Ragi Dosa

We wanted to have Ragi as a staple food and have it atleast twice in a week. So was searching for some good recipes. Got Ragi dosai recipe from Rak's Kitchen with an awesome chutney combination. I tried the same in home and it came out really well. My hubby left me just 2 dosa and completed all by himself :) He loved it a lot and got more appreciations too :) Here goes the healthy recipe.


1/2 cup Ragi
1/4 cup Wheat
1 Onion
1 Green chillies
Few Curry leaves
Required Salt
Required Water

  • Add Ragi, wheat, salt, curry leaves, finely chopped chillies and Onions together. To it add water to form Dosa batter consistency. Allow it to rest for 10mins.
  • In a hot griddle/non stick tava. Pour a laddle of Batter from outer side to inner. Do not Spread them, sprinkle batter if they are holes.
  • Add more oil so that it gets cooked well. Flip and allow it get cooked the other side too.
  • Serve with Red chilli chutney.
