Ragi roti with tomato chutney - Andhra Style

Here's a recipe for Ragi Roti with Tomato Chutney in Andhra style:

For Ragi Roti:


  • 1 cup ragi flour (finger millet flour)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup grated carrots
  • 2 green chilies, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Water as needed
  • Oil for cooking


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ragi flour, chopped onions, grated carrots, green chilies, coriander leaves, and salt.
  2. Gradually add water and knead the mixture to form a soft and pliable dough. The dough should hold together well.
  3. Divide the dough into small equal-sized balls.
  4. Take one dough ball and dust it with ragi flour. Flatten it between your palms to form a small disc.
  5. Place the flattened dough on a clean surface and roll it out into a circular shape using a rolling pin. The thickness can vary according to your preference.
  6. Heat a tawa or griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled roti on the tawa and cook until small bubbles start to appear on the surface.
  7. Flip the roti and cook the other side. Apply a little oil on both sides of the roti and cook until it turns golden brown and slightly crispy.
  8. Remove the roti from the tawa and repeat the process with the remaining dough balls.
  9. Serve the hot Ragi Roti with Tomato Chutney.
