Ragi Mudde Recipe - Ragi Sankati Recipe - Keppai Kali Recipe

This recipe is very new to me. But it is a very popular dish in andhra / karnataka. Ragi flour / finger millet flour is cooked in water to shape it into a ball. This can be served with any spicy curries or dal or even with nonveg curries. There are two ways of making this ragi mudde, one with rice and one without rice. This version is with rice and will share the other version soon.

Check other ragi recipes here and millets recipes here.

Ragi mudde is made often in rural part of karnataka. This is a healthy and filling meal and keeps the farmers full for a long time. My granny makes it when we were little. She never uses rice. If you are making this for diabetic people, skip the rice.

Ragi is rich in iron and it is good for weight loss and helps to bring sugar level under control. So include it in your diet often.

You can simply serve this with buttermilk, peeled shallots & green chillies as well.

You can also have it with,
