Ragi flour, also known as finger millet flour, has gained recognition as a superfood due to its incredible nutritional benefits. In this blog, brought to you by NutriTokri, we present a delightful recipe for Ragi Idli, combining the goodness of ragi flour with the traditional South Indian breakfast favorite. These nutrient-packed idlis are not only delicious but also contribute to a healthy and balanced diet.

Why Choose Ragi Flour for Idlis?

Ragi flour offers numerous health benefits, making it an ideal choice for creating nutritious idlis:

  1. Rich in Nutrients: Ragi flour is a powerhouse of essential nutrients like calcium, iron, fiber, and amino acids. It helps in strengthening bones, improving digestion, and providing sustained energy throughout the day.

  2. Gluten-Free Option: For individuals with gluten sensitivities or those following a gluten-free diet, ragi flour serves as an excellent alternative to wheat-based flours. It allows everyone to enjoy the traditional taste of idlis without compromising on health.

  3. Low Glycemic Index: Ragi flour has a low glycemic index, which means it helps regulate blood sugar levels. Incorporating ragi idlis into your diet can aid in managing diabetes and maintaining a stable blood sugar balance.

Recipe for Ragi Idli:


  • 1 cup NUTRITOKRI’s Ragi flour.
  • 1 cup idli rice or regular rice
  • 1/2 cup urad dal (split black lentils)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds (methi seeds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • Water, as needed


  1. Wash the rice, urad dal, and fenugreek seeds separately and soak them in water for about 4-6 hours. Drain the water after soaking.

  2. Grind the rice and fenugreek seeds together to a smooth batter consistency. Similarly, grind the urad dal separately to a fluffy and light texture.

  3. Combine both the batters in a large mixing bowl. Add ragi flour and salt to the mixture. Mix well, ensuring all the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. The batter should be of pouring consistency. If needed, add water gradually to achieve the desired consistency.

  4. Allow the batter to ferment overnight or for 6-8 hours in a warm place. Fermentation enhances the nutritional value and makes the idlis lighter and fluffier.

  5. After fermentation, gently mix the batter. Grease the idli molds with a little oil and pour the batter into each mold, filling them to three-fourths of their capacity.

  6. Steam the idlis in an idli cooker or steamer for about 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the idlis comes out clean.

  7. Once cooked, remove the idli plates from the steamer and let them cool for a minute. Using a spoon, carefully remove the idlis from the molds.

  8. Serve the nutritious ragi idlis hot with sambar, coconut chutney, or any other accompaniment of your choice.
