49 RAGI HALWA

Ragi/Kezhvarugu/Finger millet

Please have a look at the ongoing CWS - Pepper event here and send in your entries on or before June 30th.

Ragi Halwa a sweet made with just ragi and sugar is a twist when you are tired of making or tasting other halwa. The texture of this halwa is so soft and smooth that it just melts into your mouth. You can never make it out that it is made out of ragi.


You can either use ragi flour or fresh ragi granules.If using ragi granules then soak for 2 - 3 hours and grind to a fine paste with enough water. Keep aside and filter with a siever/filter or cloth. Save and keep the water aside.


If using ragi flour then mix the flour with water and keep aside for 10 - 15 minutes. Keep mixing now and then. Use a filter and pour the mixture to remove the rough particles. While pouring too keep mixing the spoon and pour in.

The rest of the ingredients


Ragi as mentioned above( have used half cup of flour)
Sugar - 1/2 cup or as sweetness required
Cardamom - 1 crushed
Ghee - 3 - 4 tbsp
Fried cashewnuts - few

Heat a thick pan and pour in the mixture along with sugar and keep stirring with a spatula. Now and then pour a tsp of ghee and stir well. Keep mixing/stirring until it is thick as halwa. It Will take around 20 - 25 minutes. Finally add freshly crushed cardamom and fried cashewnuts and mix well.

Hi Padma,

pls let me know abt the shelf life of this halwa... Planning to take it during travel... will it keep for 4-5 days at room temperature?

Anonymous said...

And when do we add the sugar?

Padma said...

Have updated the post - on when to add sugar.

Padma said...

If stored in normal room temperature, then this halwa can stay good upto 2 days. Or else you can store it in a cool place like an ice box or ice pack and take along with you, if you are travelling to keep it good for 4 -5 days or for a week.
