I have been blogging for 10+ years and in all these years I have never posted a Ragi Roti Recipe! I myself find it hard to believe as I have been making it on and off. In fact, I have Ragi based Poori recipes like this simple Ragi Poori and Ragi Radish Poori recipe but never a Roti with Ragi!

I had another stuffed paratha for R planned but I did not have time to make an elaborate dish and hence stuck to making a simple recipe that I have made many times before but never posted it here.

Ragi is loaded with Calcium and is good for body.But kids rarely eat it mainly because of the color. Even then, I keep adding ragi glour to Dosa / adai batter and feed it to the kids. Check out the 25+ Ragi based dishes .Click on the link to see recipes starting from home made porridge mix to main dishes to cakes and desserts.


In this recipe, I have used Ragi flour and added whole wheat flour, carrot, onions and coriander leaves to give some softness and add to the flavor of the Roti. This is the same Roti that I used for the Quinoa Roti Wrap recipe!

Because of the addition of wheat flour, these Rotis stay soft even after a while. You can add vegetables like grated cauliflour / cabbage,radish etc to the dough.Or you can omit the add-ons and make a plain Ragi Roti.

Step by step method to prepare Ragi Roti Recipe

Take whole wheat flour, Ragi flour,salt, grated carrot, finely chopped onion and coriander seeds in a bowl.Mix well.Add water and knead to a smooth non sticky dough.Add oil and knead for a few more minutes.

Pinch out a ball of dough and place on a rolling board. Dusting a little flour, roll into a thin circle. Cook on a heated griddle till brown spots appear on both sides.Remove from griddle. Repeat for the remaining dough.

Serve with a side of your choice.

  1. Yes , it is hard to believe that you haven’t posted a Ragi roti – we know your blog features maximum oats and ragi or healthy recipes . So kind of hard to believe .
    Anyways this roti is really interesting with the addition of carrots and onions . Must have tasted fantastic . Right ?

  2. That happens so often that the regualr dishes we keep making somehow never find their way to the blog. This seems like the perfect time to post a roti recipe. And what a nice way to get kids and adults to eat ragi. The rotis look so soft and nutritious with the veggies added. Yum yum!!

  3. Nutritious ragi rotis, they are just prefect to feed anyone easily . Definitely a super healthy roti to make quite often at home without any hesitation. Adding veggies makes this rotis more healthier and interesting.

  4. That is a wonderful way to incorporate ragi into our diet. Sometimes it happens that the very popular and regular recipes don’t find their way into our blogs, right? Anyway never too late for this wonderful roti.

  5. Lately I have started eating all the millets, Ragi being one of those. I generally add potato in ragi roti. With carrots and onions I’m sure it must have tasted awesome.
    Loved your clicks and that napkin too

  6. We make roti with ragi and lots and lots of onions. But the dough is so difficult to handle because of no gluten. Adding wheat flour will make the dough pliable and easy to roll and kids won’t mind the ragi in this. Looks so fabulous PJ.

  7. You have so many ragi based dishes and yet Ragi roti is missing, that’s so tough yaar, but on the bright side your letter got fulfilled right..very nicely done. I also love the fact your rotis are perfect circles..fantastic!
