Ragi dhokla – easy breakfast recipes

As I have already mentioned in my previous posts that breakfast is a important meal at our house and I do make something really filling and satiating. But deciding each day the menu for breakfast is a big task for me. The reason is I want the kids to like  them and not throw a tantrum early in the morning. Sometimes , I am really organised and have all the preparations done well before hand so that I can whip things up in a jiffy.  But sometimes my laziness takes over and I end up wondering what to do. But then to avoid such confusions and headaches, I do some simple preperations the previous day itself which actually take a very little of your time.

Ragi dhokla      So what I actually do is soak up a little udid dal and grind it in a mixer to a smooth paste and add in any of the millet flours or semolina or in case of emergencies even wheat flour or rice flour. Yes, I mentioned mixer, because I do not have to take the pains of using and cleaning the wet grinder too. I allow this batter to ferment and they are ready for your dosas next morning. Simple , isn’t it?    I generally make dosas with this batter and hence made it on the first day as usual. My son is not usually fond of these dosas as the colour is not too appealing, but I coax him to have a few by stating how healthy it is. But then I was thinking of doing something different with the left over batter as I did not want to force upon him again. So I went ahead and made some dhoklas with the left over batter. He did not want to have when he saw it. But I just asked him to have a piece and not to have anymore if he does not like it. Things were different. He actually liked it and asked for more until they were almost over. He had his sisters share too. She is still young and yet to acquire a taste for this , but will eventually do so. But the boy asked me not to make dosas anymore, but he wanted only this dhoklas everytime. So what is more satisfying tham feeding yourself and your family with this steamed,healthy,low fat and low calorie ragi dhoklas!!
