Healthiest easiest breakfast of Ragi Idli with detailed video recipe. Make Ragi Idli & Ragi Dosa batter in blender with this fail-proof recipe.
Idli is a staple breakfast in our home and that’s probably true for any South Indian household. I always have a batch of Idli & Dosa batter in my fridge and that’s my savior every morning when I am pressed for time. I already have a fail-proof recipe for easily making idli and I also have Millet Idli recipe. This time, I got around making Ragi Idli. Ragi – known as Finger Millet is a superfood that has a ton of health benefits. I chose to make no rice Ragi Idli that uses whole Ragi/Finger Millet. It is similar to this Multigrain Dosa that my mother-in-law makes, only simpler.
In this recipe of Ragi Idli, I share how to make Idli batter in a mixie/blender. I usually follow the same proportions whether I make the batter in a wet grinder or in a mixie/blender. The problem with batter ground in blender is that it tends to get warm and therefore the idlis turn hard. So the best trick is to use ice cold water while grinding and always add salt to the batter while grinding – that way the batter stays good. If you have a powerful blender and if you can grind it in 20 secs or so, then that works well too! I used Balzano Nutri Blender and it was a breeze making this batch of Ragi Idli batter.
