Finger Millet Pancake/ Ragi Rotti - Authentic and Instant Version Recipes

As I started using and knowing benefits of Ragi/ Finger Millet I learned many dishes of this cereal. Here is one more super healthy easy breakfast dish. You can prepare Ragi Rotti/ Finger Millet Pancake in two versions. Authentic style is very soft and you can roll rotti as thin as possible. Another one is Instant format mixing Rava/Semollina(coarse wheat flour) and Rice flour as a bonding agent to ragi. This is little hard and thick in shape. The key ingredient of Avarekalu / Mochai/ Lilva beans is what makes this rotti more special. But it was not available in our nearby area Indian store, I substituted with green peas and sweet corn. Whichever your preference version of recipe enjoy this super healthy ragi rotti.
