Ragi Roti / Ragi Ada

Ragi Roti is a healthy flat bread made with finger millet flour and shallots. It is flavored with cumin seeds and carom seeds and spiced up with green chillies. Easy to make and packed with nutrition. Serve it for breakfast with coconut chutney or yogurt dip or you can eat just plain for evening snack with a hot cup of tea.


  • 1 Cup Ragi Flour / Ragi Atta
  • 6 Shallots chopped finely
  • 1 green Chilli chopped finely
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ajwain / Carom Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh coconut bits for a nice crunch
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil / sesame seed oil to cook the rotis
  • water to knead the dough
  • Salt to taste


1. In a bowl add ragi atta, shallots, green chillies, cilantro leaves, cumin seeds, carom seeds and salt.Mix everything together




2. Start adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time to the atta and mix the dough until it comes together as a soft dough


3. Heat tawa  / pan for cooking the rotis
4. Take a zip lock bag and spray cooking oil. Place 2 tablespoons of the ragi roti atta over the greased zip lock bag. Gently press the dough using hand and spread it to a thin round roti


6. When the tawa is hot, carefully lift the ragi roti from the zip lock bag and place it over the tawa. Do not place the roti directly with the zip lock bag. The bag melts instantly and it is a mess. Lift the ragi roti with hand and place it on the tawa.
