I love any form of Ragi dish. My mum gets freshly milled flour for me. Ragi Roti is one of my most favourite dish and I make this at least twice a week for my lunch. My 2nd son is also fond of Ragi dishes. since my hubby and my first son are not big fans I seldom do it for the family meals. Nowadays my husband is more healthy conscious so he is more open for millet base recipes. So When I suggested instant Ragi dosa for our dinner last week they readily agreed. To my surprise my son also liked it.Pin It Now!
