Blogging Marathon# 50: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Bookmarked Recipes
Dish: Ragi Adai from Valli’s recipe here

We are starting the final week of this month’s Blogging marathon. Next month is going to be a month long mega marathon with ‘Baking’ as the theme, so the marathon group is currently busy firing up the ovens and making tons of baked goodies.

My theme for this week is ‘Bookmarked Recipes‘ and I decided to keep it simple this time around. With thousands of bookmarked recipes, it is practically impossible to make just 3, so I picked an ingredient and found 3 recipes from my bookmarks and that made thing simple and less stressful.

Ragi flour is my ingredient and the first dish I made are these Ragi adai from Valli’s blog. Adai are almost instant dosas made with a mixture of different lentils. Here ragi flour is used along with lentils and rice.

It is a great way to incorporate ragi flour into the diet because the taste of ragi is subtle and even kids would love these dosas. Valli’s recipe had a spicy, onion & green chili topping, but I skipped it and made mine without. We still loved these adai with some chutney, they are very filling and delicious.

  1. Wash and soak lentils for at least 30 minutes. Drain the water and grind to a smooth paste along with red chilies and cumin seeds.
  2. Transfer to a mixing bowl, add the ragi flour, rice flour, salt and enough water to make a smooth lump-free batter. Consistency should be similar to dosa batter.
  3. Let it sit for 10~15 minutes.
  4. Heat a tawa, pour 1~2 ladle-full batter and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the toppings evenly on the top, if using and press lightly. Drizzle some oil around and cook covered for 2~3 minutes.
