Ragi (red millet) uthappam

Following yesterday’s post I decided to try Anna’s recipe for ragi uthappam.   I must admit my preconceived notions on ragi (based on childhood years in Bangalore) have not done this flour justice.  It is quite filling and based on the two dishes I have made so far appears to be fairly versatile.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

What do I need to make it?

  • 1 cup ragi flour (red millet)
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 2 small shallots
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 medium tomato
  • Handful of fresh coriander chopped
  • Salt to taste

How many will I make?

Depending on size around 4

How do I make it?

Chop all the vegetable into fine pieces.   Mix the ragi with 1 cup of water till you get a medium consistency batter.   Add the chopped vegetables and season to taste.   Heat a frying pan or dosai pan if you have one and spoon a ladle of the mixture, drizzle some oil around the uthappam.   Cover with a lid and cook for a couple of minutes before turning over and cooking on the other side.  Enjoy on its own or with a chutney/sambar of your choice.
