Wow, this is something very unique and healthy. I don’t cook too much with ragi, but I like your idea of using sprouted ragi. First time here, I also like your dahi baingan.

Hi Kamala,

Thanks for sharing .
I tried your recepe,But it tasted bland..Is that I have missed something or is there anything that can make it sour or spicy?

Kamala August 26, 2011 at 10:22 pm

@ Devi
Dosa (தோசை) will be bland only. This will not be spicy like Adai (அடை). You make it spicy with a suitable chutney as side dish.

Today I tried again,it came out well,I think it was not fermented yesterday,Thanks for sharing.
