Sweet Ragi Dosa

Come evening and the question of snacks or tiffin for the day comes up. To come up with new and healthy ideas everyday isn’t easy. Today was no different. My mother-in-law and I were sitting in our living room at around 3:30 PM and the question of the evening’s tiffin hung over us.
My mother-in-law came up with the idea of making sweet dosas, something we had not done in a while. So, today we had steaming hot and sweet dosas with butter melting on top of it. Yummy, yum, huh?
Rice flour – 1 ladle
Wheat flour – 1 ladle
Ragi flour – 1 ladle
Jaggery – 1 to 1½ ladles
Cardamom powder – ½ tsp
Coconut – 3 tbsp
In a bowl, mix all the flour, cardamom and jaggery. Jaggery tends to ooze out water, so be careful to add very little water. Let this batter sit for a few minutes.
Mix the batter well and add water if necessary. Add the grated coconut and mix well.
Place a flat tawa or griddle on the stove and make dosas with the prepared batter.
Serve hot sweet dosas with butter or try my combination of sweet dosa with spicy avakai :-)

Note - Ragi flour is optional. You can also use mixed grains to make this dosa.



  1. My Mom makes a spicy version by adding grated ginger, cilantro and green chillies, salt and sugar..this reminded me to try one after so many years.
    Love Ash.

  2. @ Ash - Spicy version sounds yumm!
