Ragi Dosa

I have chosen 30 Minute meal as my first week theme for Blogging Marathon 19th edition. 30 minute meal is a theme in which we have to make a full meal with in 30 minutes. There are many recipes that we can cook in 30 minutes. If we have all ingredients in hand, cooking a dish with in 30 minutes is not a difficult job. But that depends on the recipe if the recipe calls for soaking or pre heating only that recipe takes extra time. This cooking time depends on the quantity too. If you have an idea what to cook for your meal then 30 minutes is more then enough to make a dish. All most every vegetable takes 15 to 20 minutes time to cook, rest of the time you can use for chopping and grinding the masalas. This is my experience and my view, what about you?.
                                             Last week i am really busy with varalakshmi puja and some personal work so that i did not grind any idli or dosa batter. Every day I thought of soaking rice and dal for idli, dosa batter, by the end of the day will be tired and leave that idea for that day. I made instant break fast recipes like this ragi dosa for this whole week. These instant dosa recipes are very help full when we are busy. It takes just 5 minutes to make the batter and with in 10 minutes you can serve delicious and healthy dosa with chutney. No need of soaking, grinding just mix all ingredients and your batter is ready to make dosas. For this dosas i made an instant chutney which is my favorite. My Grand mother (nanamma, fathers mother) used to make this instant chutney when she is with lack of time. Hope you all enjoy these two easy to make recipes, here they are....
