Everyone likes to a be healthy and eat good nutritious food..But finding those recipes are really hard..So I am giving you a healthy but tasty adai recipe which is prepared from ragi/finger millet. This recipe is good for diabetics too, so you can make this for your loved one who is suffering from diabetics..


You can serve this with any spicy chutney you want..But the best combo is my Chilli & Garlic Chutney..But you can combo this with anything. And if you are diet you can enjoy this almost everyday..


So hope you like it and let me know what you think..


Ragi Flour / Finger Millet Flour – 1 cup / 250 gms / ¼ kg

Onion-1  finely chopped
Green Chilli – 2 chopped
Curry leaves – 1 spring
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku – 1 tsp
Curd – 3 tblspn
Oil- 1 tblspn
Salt to taste


Heat oil in a kadai. Add mustard, curry leaves , green chilli, onions, salt and fry till light golden.

Pour in water and curd and bring it to a boil.

Add in ragi flour slowly while mixing constantly to avoid lumps. Mix well so that it gets incorporated and comes together.

Transfer this to a bowl and allow it to cool down.

Now take a small ball out of this and spread it over a oiled plastic sheet.This will prevent it from sticking.

Heat a tawa and put this adai carefully over it and cook for 1 min on one side.

Flip over and cook on other side too.

    why this is so difficult task aarthi?? why dont we skip the step of doing the boiling water and then add ragi.. Instead why cant we add just water and ragi and spread thickly over the tawa?? Will that taste good or not??

  6. @sita...Adding ragi flour to water first cooks it completely, so you won't get the raw flavour of that in the adai. you are just crisping up the adai in the tawa...

  7. great recipe..I used to do it like chapati, but as you said I used to get the raw ragi smell.now this is a cool idea..

  8. wow....The ragi rooti looks yummy7..even I prepare this rooti,,but i use bit different method....next time i will try ur recipe for sure....
