Did you know that fermented items tend to worsen acidity, or even cause it? Hence, idlis, dosas and such items made with a fermented batter are best avoided by those suffering from acidity.

This Nachni Dosa is a delicious alternative made with ragi and without rice. The batter is not fermented, but tastes fabulous because of the addition of ingredients like onions and a wee bit of green chilli and ginger pastes.

Enjoy the Nachni Dosa hot, with mildly-spiced Minty Green Chutney .
