Mini Stuffed Ragi Crepes | Diabetic Friendly | Gluten Free Stuffed Finger Millet Crepes

The second in the stuffed series after yesterday’s Vegan + GF Stuffed Peppers in tomato gravy are these cute Stuffed GF pancakes made with Ragi flour. Ragi / Nachini / Finger millet is an acquired taste and kids generally don’t take to Ragi either unless habituated from childhood or camouflaged creatively.  So, while the Ragi Chocolate Cake and the Jaggery Ragi Muffins remain the family’s favourite (& a perfect sweet way to sneak in finger millet – a great food for diabetics too), today’s idea came after I made the Instant GF chocochip pancakes, which was very well received. 

The kids loved the idea of mini stuffed Ragi crepes for a Sunday breakfast and the little one in particular didn’t ask me too many questions on why the “dosa” was “darker” in colour and not a golden hue. 

This can be a great evening snack too where the fillings are endless and you can go wild from stir fried paneer to veggie mix to grated cheese to curried chickpeas to Mexican in these crepes. Keep the fillings as fancy as you please and the outer “healthy” covering is a piece of cake (not literally though!)


To make the GF Stuffed Crepes (makes 6 servings) 

Crepes batter: 

Ragi / finger millet flour – 1 cup

Rice flour – 1/2 cup

Sour Yoghurt -1/4 cup (skip for vegan or sub with any plant based curd)

Rice rava (cream of rice) -2 heaped tablespoon

Salt to taste 

Oil – to shallow fry the crepes

Chopped coriander – 1 tsp

Crushed ginger – 1/2 tsp (opt.)

Crushed pepper – 1/4 tsp

Water – as required 

Soda – 1/8 tsp




I used the masala dosa filling. Recipe here. You can use any filling you wish. 

Mix all the ingredients except soda for the crepe batter and make it to a smooth runny (too thin batter). Keep aside for 10 mins.

 Heat a tava (skillet)and grease it well. Add the soda and gently fold into the batter .


Spoon a small ladleful of the batter in a circular motion on the tava (let it be a thickish small dosa kind of). Drizzle oil around the sides, cook and cover for 30 seconds. Now fill a tablespoon of the filling and fold the half over of the crepe. Repeat for all crepes. Serve immediately.

  1. MySpicyKitchen

    Mini crepes are so cute and quite appealing to kids and adults alike. Like the filling suggestions when served as an appetizer.

  2. Ragi is definitely an acquired taste, so I add a ladle full of ragi to the regular dosa batter. Great idea to fill these with masala potatoes, I am tempted with the paneer suggestion too!

  3. Sowmya :)

    Masala ragi dosa sounds delicious. Looks like this will tempt my family to eat ragi dosais too. Looks so cute and tasty!

  4. Varada's Kitchen

    The mini dosas look very cute. They must have tasted great with the masala dosa filling.

  5. Mini dosas with ragi and aloo stuffing will appeal to all ages without any drama :). I am tempted to try this rice rava addition.

  6. Those mini stuffed crepes look so inviting Kalyani, good share!

    Ragi can always be masked under chocolate and my daughter even loves the spicy roti I make. These mini crepes look so beautiful and with the masala filling this must be so delicious.
