millet based recipes are very common for our day to day breakfast. we generally make idli or dosa for weekend breakfast, but millet based recipes or even akki roti for weekdays breakfast. these are healthy but more importantly quick and easy to make in no time. moreover, last week i had shared 2 ways of making akki roti, and i got many requests to post ragi rotti recipe. my previous post of finger millet roti was very old anyway, hence i thought of posting it 2 ways – one patting the roti on tawa and the other with the help of banana leaves. i personally prefer to do the latter one, but some prepare to make these roti’s in tawa too. hence i thought of sharing both the recipe.

furthermore, before concluding some tips, suggestions and variations to ragi roti recipe. firstly, the dough has to be soft and easy to spread on any even surface. hence if your dough is hard and cannot be spread, you can sprinkle some water to make it moist and soft. secondly, i personally recommend using banana leaf to tap and spread the roti. you may use baking paper, silver foil and even cling wrap for the same purpose. also, attempt the tawa based approach if you have 2 tawa, so that it can be used alternatively. lastly, the ragi roti is spiced with herbs and onions, hence you do not require any condiments specifically. yet you may very well serve it with choice of coconut chutney, or any chutney powder.
