Ragi Rava Ladoo

Ragi or Finger millet grains are known for their nutritional benefits like good dietary fiber, cooling agent for your body, reduces cholesterol levels & many more.
Even with all those health benefits I never liked them becoz they never tasted good Or say no taste at all.I still remember my mom  running behind me to finish the one big glass of ragi malt mixed with yogurt.
Anyways now I want to experiment new ways of cooking these healthy grains & that's how the ladoo was made. 

 

Ingredients
1/2 Cup ragi 
1/4 Cup coconut pieces
3/4 Cup grated jaggery 
1/2 cup sliced almonds & raisins 
1 Tbs elachi powder 
1 Tsp butter

*** Ragi grains are hard to grind as they are. So you need to sun dry them or just dry fry for few seconds in a hot pan and grind them.
Heat a pan and add ragi grains to it. Dry fry them for few secs. Coarse grind Ragi grains to get a rava texture. Now heat a pan with 1 tsp of butter. and fry ragi rava for 5mins or till the nice aroma comes out of it. Switch off pan and allow it to cool. 
*** I used fresh coconut as it has the wetly texture which blends all the ingredients together. 

Grind coconut and keep aside.


Now mix all the ingredients in a  bowl together. ( No need to add milk or butter to make balls)
As the coconut is fresh you will be able to roll nice ladoos as shown. 

Out Come: They are very tasty with all those almonds, raisins, elachi & jaggery. I love to call it a healthy bite.

  9. Each day ever rising market value can't be met along with your paycheck,
    making it the conclusion with the month could be impossible not fake organic after an associate said about chicken poop
    fertilizer being a great organic compound, i were required to investigate on how to use, of most things, chicken poop.
