Three reasons why you should try Tata Sampann’s Ragi Dosa Mix – It is fiber-rich, delicious and super easy to make.
Reintroducing millets to our diets can be challenging. Especially because our taste buds are spoilt for choice with fast food and instant meals that offer a large variety.
Millets, a powerhouse of nutrients, are often termed as boring when it comes to flavor. Thanks to the many brands that are now making millet-based snacks and instant mixes, consuming them doesn’t seem so dull. Convenient and easy millet-based dosa mixes, pancakes, cakes and even noodles are available in the market.
We picked the Tata Sampann Ragi dosa mix for testing. Our Tata Sampann Supergrain Ragi Dosa Mix review explores the product for its price, packaging, and convenience. Taste and texture of the dosa are prime parameters as well.
Tata Sampann Ragi Dosa Mix – Everything You Need To Know
Here is all that you need to know about the Tata Sampann supergrain ragi dosa mix.
Tata Sampann’s Ragi Dosa Mix comes in a purple-maroon colored pouch pack. The pack is not resealable.
2. Main Ingredients
The ingredients include – Ragi Flour (52%), Black Gram Flour (16%), Rice flour, refined wheat flour (maida), Bengal gram flour, Iodized salt (Anticaking agent (INS 536)), Fenugreek powder (0.6%), Acidity regulator (INS 296), raising agent (INS 500 (ii)), Cumin powder (0.2%)
Ragi, by nature, has a very earthy, nutty taste which also lends a grey-brown shade to the dish it is added to.
There are a few things we loved about the taste of this dosa. It is well-seasoned and there is no need to add any masala from the top. It is not spicy, so the option of giving it to children is also open.
4. Texture And Appearance
Millet flours are not superfine, like refined flours and have a comparatively coarser texture. So the dosa will also have a granier texture as a result.
The dry powder of this dosa mix is in earthy tones and looks like a fine powder. But when you actually feel it between your fingers, it has a slight coarseness to it.
Despite having 52% ragi flour, the dosa is not hard or rubbery. It has a soft texture and has crisped up well from the edges.
A 180 gram pack is priced at Rs 70/-.
6. Shelf Life
The shelf life is 7 months.

The ratio of dry powder to water given in the instructions makes a very thin batter, so we adjusted the consistency by using a smaller quantity of water. As ragi takes longer to cook than regular/rice flour-based dosas, make sure you let it cook well on one side before flipping. Make sure you cook it on medium flame.
The batter making process and the cooking is very simplified and we love it. This is hassle free and can be done in three easy steps. All you need from your pantry is a source of fat. We appreciate the well-seasoned, nutty tasting ragi dosas this yielded.
