BM #114 Week 3 Day 3 - 

For today's post under 'A-Z Andhra dishes', here is the famous Ragi Muddhalu  (Ragi Morsels) from Karnataka and some parts of Andhra Pradesh. 

My aunt hailing from those parts urged me to try this out a few years ago. In fact she gave me another version (Ragi Sankati - a mixture of rice and ragi flour) to ease into getting used to Ragi. 

It has taken me so many years to try this out and I have started to love it. I figured that the key to enjoying these delicious and nutritious Ragi Muddhalu is the accompaniment. Our favorite so far has been Tomato Gojju.

Ingredients - 

1 cup water
1/2 cup ragi flour
1-2 tsp of ghee
Salt a pinch

Method Of Preparation -

Make a slurry with 1 tablespoon of ragi flour and 1/4 cup of water. 

Boil the remaining 3/4 cup of water adding salt and 1 tsp of ghee. 

To the simmering water, add the slurry, mix well and let it come to a boil. 

Sprinkle the remaining ragi flour onto the simmering pot. Lower heat, cover and let it be for about 4-5 minutes ( don’t mix it). The ragi is supposed to cook in the steam. 

Remove the lid and mix well drizzling a little ghee (1/2 tsp approximately). 

Cover and let it cook on low heat for another 2-3 minutes.
Remove from heat and mix well.

Let it rest undercover for another 3-4 minutes.
While it is still slightly hot but bearable, apply ghee to your palms and pinch small portions of the cooked ragi and make small portions.

Serve it hot with any kind of sambar kind of a gravy.


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 2

  5. This is quite interesting! I mean there is no rolling or steaming, just cooking on stove top and done... I am not a fan of ragi but this does sound very delicious...
