Ragi Rotti/Finger Millet Roti

Ragi or finger millet is an important part of a healthy diet. Twice in a week its good to have ragi for balanced and low carbohydrate diet. I usually go for instant or fermented dosa, roti and ragi balls. This recipe which I am going to share today is quite different from what I usually prepare. Rather than using the ragi powder directly I have boiled it in water and used to prepare soft rotis.

Ragi Rotti/Finger Millet Roti

Ingredients:

  • Ragi powder- 1 cup
  • Water- 2 cups
  • Salt
  • Onion-1
  • Coriander leaves- 1/4 cup
  • Green chilly- 2

Preparation:

  1. Take a deep pan and add water along with salt, let it start boiling before you add the ragi powder
  2. Now slowly stir the content and let the water evaporate and form soft ragi dough.
  3. Transfer it into a bowl using a spoon and let it cool a bit, add chopped green chillies, onion, coriander leaves, before you kneed it roughly
  4. Pluck out a small ball of dough and roll into round roti, or you can place this on a plastic and cover it with another plastic then press it hard with a big plate to get the round shape.
  5. Now transfer this to a pan and cook it for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve it hot with chutney or yogurt sprinkled with chat masala.

Ragi Ambali/ Finger millet porridge or cooler

Ragi or finger millet flour is very good for health. I know most don’t like the taste but which healthy thing tastes good? If you are into diet then ragi is the best. I prepare ragi rotti, ragi mudde and ragi milk shakes. But I heard that ragi ambali is good for reducing the body heat. So here I am with this recipe for cool summer.

Ragi ambali

Ingredients: 

Ragi flour- 1 cup (serves 2)

Water- 2 to 2 and half cup

Salt

Buttermilk

Preparation:

Take ragi flour and dissolve it in little water make sure that there is no knot formation before you transfer this into boiling water. Now transfer this mixture into boiling water and keep stirring it until you get a smooth paste. Now let it cool add salt and buttermilk and bring it to whatever consistency you would like to drink. You can also eat mint chutney or pickle along to spice up your taste bud. In summer just refrigerate it and drink it. You will not like it if you don’t like ragi mudde because it tastes just bland.
