Ragi, Mung & Kala Channa Dosai(Savory Finger Millet & Bean Pan Cake)

Ragi or Finger Millet is actually a Pseudo grain and is very rich in calcium and iron. Dark brown in color and with a sweet taste, nutty flavor and with complex carbohydrates. Gluten free and easy to digest ragi is good from Infants to Old aged people. Here I have used Ragi flour along with protein rich Black Chick Pea flour and green mung  bean flour. Both these beans are rich in protein, iron and very low in glycemic index. Served with some chutney and a glass of vegetable smoothie they make a perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner.


Preparation Time - 10 Minutes
Cooking Time - 15 to 20 Minutes
Serves - Makes 4 Pancakes


Ingredients


Ragi Flour - 6 oz
Whole Green Mung Flour - 2 oz
Black Chick Pea Flour(Kala Channa flour) -2 oz
Water - 1 Cup (If the yogurt is little watery, cut down the water to 3/4 Cup)
Yogurt - 1/4 Cup(Thick)
Onion - 1 Small(Chopped finely)
Green Chili  - 1 or to taste or optional(chopped finely)
Salt - 3/4 Tsp or to taste


Method


1) Combine all three flours and to this add the salt and then add the yogurt and water and using an egg beater mix thoroughly without any lumps.


2) To this batter add the chopped onions and green chilies and combine well.


3) Heat a iron griddle and once it is hot take a ladle full of batter and pour the batter in a circular way to cover  the surface to make a circle and pour 1 tsp of oil around it.


4) Cook on medium heat and once it is well cooked, flip it and cook the other side.


5) Serve hot with sambhar or chutney of our choice.
