Ragi Rotti/Finger Millet Roti

Ragi or finger millet is an important part of a healthy diet. Twice in a week its good to have ragi for balanced and low carbohydrate diet. I usually go for instant or fermented dosa, roti and ragi balls. This recipe which I am going to share today is quite different from what I usually prepare. Rather than using the ragi powder directly I have boiled it in water and used to prepare soft rotis.

Ragi Rotti/Finger Millet Roti


  • Ragi powder- 1 cup
  • Water- 2 cups
  • Salt
  • Onion-1
  • Coriander leaves- 1/4 cup
  • Green chilly- 2


  1. Take a deep pan and add water along with salt, let it start boiling before you add the ragi powder
  2. Now slowly stir the content and let the water evaporate and form soft ragi dough.
  3. Transfer it into a bowl using a spoon and let it cool a bit, add chopped green chillies, onion, coriander leaves, before you kneed it roughly
  4. Pluck out a small ball of dough and roll into round roti, or you can place this on a plastic and cover it with another plastic then press it hard with a big plate to get the round shape.
  5. Now transfer this to a pan and cook it for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve it hot with chutney or yogurt sprinkled with chat masala.
