How to Make Ragi Flour Sweet Dumplings

  • Dry roast the ragi flour for a while.
  • Add 1/2 a cup of water in a pan and bring to a boil.
  • Add the jaggery powder. Once they get dissolved, switch off the stove and strain the jaggery syrup with a strainer, as the jaggery may contain sand or other impurities.
  • Measure the jaggery syrup, salt and add enough water so that you can have them fill two cups. Bring to a boil once again.
  • Meanwhile, dry roast the split green gram (paasi paruppu) and keep aside.
  • Add the roasted ragi flour to the jaggery syrup and stir continuously. When the dough turns thick, switch off the stove.
  • Add the roasted grams, grated coconut as well as cardamom powder. Keep aside.
  • Take a small ball from the dough and press it in your fingers.
  • Pressure cook them for 10 minutes in an idli cooker.
  • Serve hot.
