Ragi Rotti - Calcium Rich Breads for Babies & Kids

Ragi Rotti - Calcium Rich Breads for Babies & Kids

Apr 16, 2017Shalini Santhosh Kumar

Another traditional and popular dish in south India, especially Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The roti will be slightly harder than the wheat chappati, so I would recommend feeding babies who have atleast 2-4 teeth to chew well.

Cooking Time: 20 mins


  • 3 cups ragi flour
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • A few curry leaves chopped finely
  • Salt to taste


  • Boil the water and add to the flour. Add cumin, onion, curry leaves, and salt.
  • Mix this all together and close the container for 10 minutes, so that the steam of the hot water softens the flour.
  • Mix in a small amount of oil until the dough is soft.
  • Grease a flat griddle with oil and spread the dough in a circular motion. Cover the pan and cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overcook, as the roti may get hard. Serve hot.
