Ragi Puttu ( Finger millet )

Ragi(Finger millet) is a kind of millet and good for diabetics, cholesterol and general health. It is extremely rich in calcium and is very beneficial for women over the age of 35-40. It is also given to infants.

Ragi flour - 1cup
Water - ¼-1/2cup
Grated coconut - 3tsp
Salt - as rqd

How to prepare
=►It is as similar as preparing rice flour puttu. Instead of filling rice flour, we are
going to add ragi flour
=►Take wet ragi flour with required quantity of water (add water little by little slowly)
and salt. Mix for 5 min to obtain desired consistency. It should not be sticky like
chappati dough nor it should be very dry.
=►Transfer the mix into puttu maker with coconut gratings alternatively.
=►Place the maker on steaming vessel (puttu kudam) & steam for 5-10min
=►When it is finished cooking, remove the cylindrical portion (puttu kutti) and
push out the cakes with stick from the maker to plate and serve with curries or sugar…

note :- Dont be sad if you don't have a puttu maker. You can use idli cooker instead. Place the mix in the idli maker. Only problem is you will not get it in cylindrical shape.
