35 RAGI MURUKKU


Ragi flour - 4 cups
Rice four - 1 cup
Pottu kadalai powder( fried channa dhal/split dalia powder) - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Garlic - 5 flakes
Salt as needed
Hing/asafoetida - a pinch
Sesame seeds - 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 3/4 tbsp
Butter - 2 tbsp melted or hot oil - 1 ladle
Oil for deep frying

Make a smooth paste of onion and garlic together in a mixer/blender.


Dry roast ragi flour in a kadai/pan in medium flame for 4 - 5 minutes without turning them dark.( you can also keep the ragi flour in a microwavable bowl and switch on for 3 - 4 mts... take the bowl out and keep it again for another 2 minutes). Transfer to a mixing bowl and to it add rice four, fried channa dhal powder, salt, hing, sesame seeds , cumin seeds and onion and garlic paste. Mix well and add butter and or hot oil. Mix well again and add water little by little to make a thick dough.

Heat oil for deep frying and take a murukku press and stuff in a part of it into that and press in hot oil and deep fry your murukkus. You can also shape in and transfer and deep fry them. Adding onion and garlic gives a very good flavor to the murukkus.

Padma, it is fantastic to see so many ragi dishes on your site. I will try each one of them. I just cant thank you enough.

Ragi is a wonder diet and i just cant stop appreciating it enough. Not many people know about it, infact I had not had a good idea about it beyond it being a good diet food. However I came across this link about Ragi which was so comprehensive that it blew my mind away. I have now started including ragi once a day for sure.

Given the popularity of your site i would suggest to include this link about ragi nutrition in all your ragi related posts. this will make sure that people will not have reasons not to try your ragi dishes. This is our way to contribute to those who dont know much about Ragi and make a difference.
