First of all wishing everyone a very happy new year 🙂 I know I am very late in wishing, yet life has been really busy these days. Holidays were a little hectic and we were moving around a lot. If you are following Srividhya from Vidhya’s Vegetarian Kitchen and Vidya from Traditionally Modern Food, you must have found a post on our meet during the holidays. It was total fun, we could just meet for an hour and a half which was not enough for us. I never expected that this virtual world of blogging would give me friends. I am so happy and delighted to have so many friends around 🙂 It was so sweet of both of them to adjust their time and make plans. Both of them changed their plans for me, so sweet of both of you 🙂 Thanks for the gift girls.. Next we should plan for a longer time meet 🙂
I wanted to start the blog with a sweet this year, so here is a healthy breakfast/snack in a sweet version Ragi puttu…You can also make a salt version with this, recipe soon to come. I love this puttu and used to make it often when I was in Bangalore, but after moving to US, I had totally forgotten it. These days I am trying to include more of millets in my diet, so this came to my mind. This is a very easy, fast and a very healthy recipe. Hope everyone likes it.
Ragi Flour : 3/4 cup
Water : 1/4 cup (or as per need)
Sugar : 1 tablespoon
Grated Coconut : 2 tablespoons
Ghee : 2 tablespoons
- Take ragi flour in a bowl, sprinkle water little by little and mix. Make a crumbly mixture of it. Should not form a dough, just make sure all the flour absorbs enough water to form the crumbling texture.
- Take an idly pot or a cooker , fill the with 2 to 3 cups of water. Heat the water.
- Now put this crumble mixture in a bowl and place it inside the cooker or idly pot.
- Steam it for 10 mins in high. If you are using cooker close the cooker with a lid, do not use whistle/pressure regulator.
- After 10 mins open and sprinkle some more water an mix well. Now steam for another 5 mins. Make sure it is crumbly in texture and not like a dough.
- Meanwhile heat 2 tablespoons of ghee.
- Now after 5 mins stop and add sugar, coconut, heated ghee and mix well.
- Now puttu is ready.
Note : After preparing just make sure, if you hold it in hands and press, it should be able to form a ball and should not crumble. In case it crumbles and separates, add more heated ghee and mix.
I have used brown sugar, you can use any type of sugar variety or palm sugar to get the sweetness.
Once again Happy New Year friends, I hope to be regular in the coming days 🙂
