Ragi is my favourite millet. I try to make many different dishes using Ragi. Ragi Malt, Ragi Puttu, Ragi dosa are some of my favourite dishes. Recently, I made Ragi Banana Cake and my daughters love it so much as Ragi and jaggery go very well together. Ragi with jaggery in any form would be a wonderful dish and so I tried these ladoos. I have added nuts to make it richer and tastier. But, I want this dish to be healthier, so, I have used walnuts instead of cashew nuts. Walnuts are healthier than cashewnuts. Finally jaggery instead of sugar. So, overall the dish is healthier. My mom used to make Maladu or Ravaladdu when we have summer holidays. Ragi Ladoo is also an healthy snack for the kids. The preparation is same as maladu. Lets see how to make this healthy and tasty Ragi Ladoo...

Method:

  1. First lets dry roast the ragi flour. Ragi flour has a raw smell that will make the dish less appetizing. So, its better to roast the ragi flour and get rid off the raw smell. Heat a pan and dry roast the ragi flour for 8-10 minute in medium flame. Do not increase the flame, the flour may get burnt. So always keep the flame in medium or low. In a mixer jar, take walnuts and roasted gram dal (Pottukadalai), 

  2. Grind the pottukadalai and walnuts to a nice powder. Add this powder in a separate mixing bowl. In the mixer jar, take ragi flour and grated jaggery and give couple of pulse so that the ragi flour and jaggery are nicely mixed and incorporated together

  3. Add this ragi-jaggery powder to the mixing bowl. Mix the nuts and ragi-jaggery mixture nicely. Heat the ghee and melt it and pour it in the ragi mixture. 

  4. Using a spoon, mix the ragi-mixture well. Then start making lemon sized ladoos out of the ragi-ghee mixture. 

  5. Tasty and Healthy Ragi Ladoos are now ready to serve!!!
