Have you tried these power-packed ragi dosa premix, sprouted ragi powder and immunity-boosting foods for kids (aka chia seeds), yet?

For now, I’m am a basic, and standard recipe – a legacy of the sorts that is being prepared in south Indian households.

I have tried to give a very special twist to the recipe by preparing it with Slurrp Farm Spinach Dosa Mix. The kids love ragi dosas, but a crispy option such as ragi murukku comes handy even as a finger snack.
