Ragi recipes Hi Jaya, These 2 are the popular Ragi Kali recipes in Tamil Nadu; 1 Morkali which is generally a breakfast dish. Mix 1 cup ragi flour with 1 cup sour buttermilk &1 ½ cups water & salt to make a batter without lumps. In a vessel heat 2 tbsp oil, temper with 1 tsp mustard seeds, 2 tsp udad dhal, a few broken curd chillies, curry leaves, hing powder –when well fried reduce the flame & add the batter in a stream with one hand, stirring well with the other hand. Lump formation has to be carefully avoided & stir continuously to avoid sticking at the bottom. The kali forms a soft ball-now switch off the gas & transfer the kali to a greased plate. Cool & cut into pieces. Nowadays, I dry roast the ragi flour on a medium flame for 5 mts, cool & then proceed. 2 This is a simple dish which is a substitute for rice in a meal. Mix 1 cup of ragi flour with 3 cups of water adding salt &mixing thoroughly. Put this in a vessel on the flame & stir continuously avoiding lump formation till it starts boiling. Now simmer the flame & boil for 2 – 3 mts.Remove & temper with mustard seeds & broken curd chillies.Also you can make ragi dosai. As for idli& dosa grind 1 cup udad dhal very fine & allow that(alone) to ferment. Ju Just 1 hr before you make dosa, add 3 cups ragi flour mixed with salt &water to the ground udad & mix very well. Make dosas the usual way-they come out thin&crisp. Also if ragi kurunai is available where you live, you can make upma with all vegetables & pongal with moong dhal.In fact wheat rava & ragi rava mixed equally & cooked is very good substitute of rice.
