  • Firstly to make ragi roti, lets cook the ragi flour. For cooking the ragi flour we add water and cook. The ragi to water ratio to cook is 1 : 1 and 1/4. I took 200gms of ragi flour for that I have added 450 ml water.

  • After some time wet your hands and start kneading the dough. Make balls out of the dough and cover and keep.

Make sure you add correct quantity of water for the taken ragi flour. You can also sieve the ragi flour for any impurities.
Ragi : water ratio 1:1&1/4 
Knead dough while its still warm by wetting your hands in water. As the ragi dough will be sticky.
Dust enough flour while rolling out roti. Make thin as possible so that you get nice fluffy roti.
