- Ragi flour – 2 cups
- Onions – 1 chopped finely
- Green Chillies – 2 finely chopped
- Coriander leaves – 2 tbsp
- Curry leaves – 3-4
- Salt to taste
In a large bowl, mix raagi flour with little water and salt and make a thick dough (like chappathi dough consistency), adding in the onions, green chillies, curry leaves and coriander. Make round balls and flatten them on your palm to make a flat patty.
Heat a tawa (flat pan)/nonstick pan, brush the pan with very little oil just to make sure the dough doesnt stick to it. Then place the patty on it and spread it into a round shape. (If you are not able to handle the slight heat of the tawa, alternatively, you can flatten the dough balls on to a plastic sheet and then put it to cook on the tawa). Pour a little oil on the sides if preferred. Allow the adai to cook on one side and then turn over and cook on the other side.
Goes well with hot chutneys and butter or can be taken plain with butter. You can mix in some sauteed drumstick leaves to the raagi dough and make the adais. A very healthy and flavorful tiffin.
