Easy Nachni Pitta Polo ( Ragi Dosa )

Ragi dosa

Nachni Pitta Polo (in Konkani) literally means Ragi flour Dosa. It makes for an easy, quick breakfast recipe that can also be incorporated for main meals.

Being a millet-based (a.k.a Ragi) dish it is gluten-free, rich in complex carbohydrates, and loaded with the goodness of calcium, protein, and many other nutrients.

I picked up this recipe from my grandmother’s handwritten cookbook. So I don’t exactly know the source of origin and I choose to call it my grandmothers recipe.

A little about my grandmother: She used to love dosa’s but somehow making crisp round dosa’s wasn’t her strongest trait. Since that was one thing she loved and didn’t know to do. I choose to learn and master the art as much as I could to make her happy and see her smile. (Ps: Love can make you do crazy things. )

So here’s the recipe:
