Ragi Puttu/Ragi Sweet Puttu

                                                           One more Millet recipe I learnt from my friend Radha.I usually don't make Ragi puttu. I only make kanji (both versions) for breakfast, but she sent me this Ragi puttu few times and asked me to try. It was delicious. I don't need to say the health benefits of Ragi and this Puttu is easy to make as well.I really enjoyed trying this recipe and tasting it too.I am sure you will.....

You will Need

  • One cup Ragi flour
  • 1/4 cup Sugar or Jaggery
  • 1/4 Cup Scraped Coconut
  • A pinch of Cardamom Powder
  • 5 Cashewnuts (broken)
  • 10 Raisins.
  • 2 Tbs Ghee

How to
1.Take ragi flour in a wide bowl.Sprinkle water and mix.
 2.Sprinkle little by little carefully so that when you hold it it should mould and when you drop it should crumble this is the consistency for puttu.

 3.Tie the flour in a clean white cloth and place it in a heated idli plate.
 4.Steam for ten minutes.
 5.Remove and allow it to cool add sugar and scraped coconut.
 6.Fry some broken cashews and raisins in a tbs of ghee and pour over the puttu.
 7.Mix well and serve.
Enjoy the delicious healthy puttu along with your breakfast!
  • Use sugar,jaggery or palm candy for the sweetness and adjust the quantity according to your taste.
  • Some people add a pinch of salt to the flour,you can do so if you wish.
  • If you don't have a cloth just put it in a tall vessel,cover and steam it.
