Ragi flour/Finger millet flour - 2 cups
Onion - 1 medium chopped fine
Green chillies - 4 chopped fine
Curry leaves - few broken
Grated coconut - 2 tbsp( optional)
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tsp for each rotti


Can use chopped capsicum or some grated carrot or some grated ginger , crushed peanuts to mix with the flour.
I have used chopped capsicum here.

Take a mixing bowl and add ragi flour, onion, green chillies, curry leaves, grated coconut and salt and mix well ...then add water slowly and make a stiff dough...cover with a wet cloth and set aside for 10 to 15 minutes.

Heat a tawa/griddle...next take a plastic sheet and apply some oil and spread all over...take a small ball of the ragi mix and press with your fingers to flatten as thin as possible...if the sides get away..just push it back to fix on or shape up as round as possible. Slowly tansfer it to the tawa, apply/spray some oil and cook both sides under medium flame.

Hello Usha Prashanth.

Thanks for dropping and leaving your message.
The best side dish that can be had with this rotti is some spicy chutney like onion tomato, tomato.... and or some chutney podi.
Back home have heard that is tastes great with huchellu(Ram Til) chutney. Will update the post with a picture of huchellu when I find them.
