  • 1 c Ragi flour Finger millet flour
  • 1 c Whole wheat flour
  • ¼ c Finely chopped onions
  • ¼ c Finely shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 teaspoon Red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Roasted cumin powder
  • 3 tablespoon Finely chopped cilantro leaves coriander leaves
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • ¾ to 1 c Water
  • 1.5 teaspoon Salt or to taste

For rolling the Chapatis

  • 3 tablespoon Whole wheat flour for dusting

For cooking the Chapatis

  • 1 teaspoon Oil to cook for each paratha


Kneading the dough

  • Chop or shred all your veggies and keep them ready.
  • Now, to the bowl of your stand mixer, add the veggies, ragi flour, wheat flour, 1 tablespoon oil, salt and spice powders.
  • Use your hands and mix this once or twice.
  • When done, attach the kneading hook to the mixer.
  • Add water little by little and knead to a smooth dough. Depending on the flour you use, you may need more or less water to knead the dough. Begin with ½ c water and add 1 tablespoon water in intervals as you knead.
  • The dough should be supple and non sticky.

Rolling the chapati

  • Divide the dough into 10 equal portions.
  • Roll each portion and shape into a ball.
  • Flatten the ball, dust with flour and begin rolling into a chapati.
  • Use flour to dust the dough in between while rolling them too.

Cooking Ragi Chapati

  • Heat an iron Tawa or cast iron griddle.
  • Place the rolled chapati and cook on low flame for about 40 to 50 secs.
  • When you see the chapati getting a few tiny bubbles on the surface, flip the chapati.
  • You can see that the flipped side top has brown spots.
  • Now, smear oil on the chapati and flip again.
  • Cook on low flame for 30 to 40 secs until you see golden spots on the chapati.
  • Repeat with the other side. Remove and serve hot.
  • Roll the remaining dough into chapatis and enjoy with any curry or yogurt.

You may add grated carrots or beets or cabbage or even some spinach to this to make it healthier.
If you are making this for kids or if you dont want a vegan version, replace the oil in the dough with ghee.
Always start kneading the dough with little water and add more as you knead.
