I love to add Ragi as part of our diet at least once in a week. In South India Ragi Roti is made with vegetables and onions. It is called Ragi Roti or Ragi Adai. It tastes very good but has a thicker texture. So it may not be very kid friendly. Here is a softer version of the Ragi Roti that kids will surely enjoy. This recipe was shared by one of my friends.

Ragi Adai


  • Ragi Flour - 1 cup
  • Wheat Flour - 1/4 cup
  • Potato 1  (boiled and mashed)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil - for making the rotis


  1. Boil and mash one big potato.
  2. Take the mashed potato, flours and salt in a bowl.
  3. Mix it and knead it to form a stiff dough. The moisture from the potato will be enough to form the dough. Sprinkle few drops of water if needed.
  4. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Take a gooseberry sized portion of the dough and roll it out using dry wheat flour to about 6" diameter.
  6. Heat a tawa and cook the roti on both sides. Small brown spots appear on both sides as an indication that it is cooked. It will take about a minute on each side.
  7. Remove the ragi roti for tawa. Ragi roti is now ready to be served.

Gluten free roti. Well, if you were rolling the dough in wheatflour...then it's NOT GLUTEN FREE

Hi Chris, I haven't listed this under gluten free recipes.

You can still make it gluten free by skipping the wheat flour. The potato added will give the binding required.
