Ragi is one of the staples in Karnataka and cooked in so many ways. But my favorite is the rotti or flatbread. This dish is most popular in rural parts of southern Karnataka. Ragi rotti is prepared in the same way as akki rotti. This flavorful and balanced flatbread is a must-try.
Since ragi is gluten-free, you cannot roll the kneaded dough like chapati or roti. It needs to be patted with hands and spread on a tawa. Also, we need to use hot water to knead the dough rather than cold water. I first combine ragi flour, onions, curry leaves, green chilli, coriander leaves and grated coconut in a bowl. I then add hot water, bring it together, and knead it to a smooth dough. I pinch out a big ball of dough, pat it out in a tawa/griddle, and cook on both sides until done.
