Instant Ragi Dosa

This is a simple one – just empty the contents of the Ragi Dosa mix (roughly two cups) into a bowl. Add two cups of water and 1 cup of curds and whisk together till it comes together like a smooth batter. Set aside for half an hour and make dosas using Pure & Sure coconut oil. Serve hot with a chutney of your choice. I made a channa dal chutney and the combination tasted perfect.
