    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, 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.
