  • Sour curd-1/4th cup
  • Green chilli chopped-1
  • Coriander leaves chopped-2 tbsp.

1. Take Ragi flour, rice flour, chopped green chillies and curd in a large bowl.

When tawa is medium hot (see tips), smear oil on the surface, take ladle full batter and pour it over tawa (from the 2-3 inches height) from center to the side in circular motion.

Drizzle 1-teaspoon oil around the edges of dosa and cook until color of top surface changes to brown, it will take approx. 1-minute over medium flame.
