This Adai is made with Ragi flour, onion, Red chillies, Jeera and Ground Nut powder.


  • Ragi flour – 2 cups

  • Big onion – 1

  • Red chillies – 3 to 4

  • Jeera – 1 teaspoon

  • Ground Nut – 2 tablespoon (Coarsely powder it)

  • Mustard – 1 teaspoon

  • Urad dhal – 1 teaspoon

  • Asafoetida – a pinch

  • Oil for frying

  • Salt – 1 teaspoon or as per taste

  • Curry Leaves – few


  • Put the ragi flour in a large bowl and mix in salt, chopped onion, red chillies broken into small pieces, jeera, and coarsely powdered ground nuts.
  • In a frying pan, heat one teaspoon of oil and add mustard. When it pops, add urad dhal and fry until golden brown.
  • Add asafoetida and curry leaves to the flour mixture. Sprinkle warm water a little at a time and make a soft dough (thicker than adai batter and softer than chapatti dough).
  • Heat a skillet and grease with oil. Take an orange size portion of dough and place it on the skillet.
  • Wet your fingers in water and press the dough out into a round shape. Pour one teaspoon of oil around the edges. Cook over medium heat until the colour changes.
  • Flip over and cook the other side.
  • Serve plain or with any chutney.
  • This dish is very nutritious and can be made even more so by adding a cup of grated carrots or any finely chopped greens to the dough.


  1. How to make Ragi payasam?

    • Hi Akila,

      If you want to make ragi payasam, first fry 1/2 cup ragi flour in a teaspoon of ghee. Add 2 to 3 cups of boiled milk and stir well. Then add two to three tablespoons of sugar and stir well. When it starts boiling well add a pinch of cardamom powder, fried cashews and raisins. If the consistency is too thick, then again you can add required boiled milk and make it to the right consistency. If it is thin, then allow to boil for some more time.
