Ragi-idli-recipe

(updated with stepwise pictures)
Hi friends,
Sorry for the sudden disappearance from blogging.As i had an unexpected trip to Tirunelveli,i couldn't post any.I missed all ur posts too:(.Even today i am in salem and leaving to bangalore on tuesday.I will be regular from Wednesday i guess.:).I'll update this post with stepwise pictures after going there..
Ragi idli,dosa recipe using fermentation method was in my try list for long time.When i came across this recipe in Kamala's corner,i bookmarked it and tried immediately.Actually i wanted to make ragi idli without rice but as i tried for the first time,i tried the recipe as it is.Ragi@Kezhvaragu(in Tamil) has lots of health benefits.I usually make Instant Ragi dosa.But this recipe is surely a welcome change as i can make soft idlis & crispy dosas as well.Its a healthy breakfast/Dinner recipe for diabetic & people who look for weight loss.Do try this soft idli recipe.U'll love it for sure.

  13. The fact of the matter is these idlis made out of ragi flour do not turnout to be as soft or porous as fermented idlis made out of rice and urad dal.
    One suggestion may be to add sodabicarb or baking powder. Just before making the idlis or perhaps use ragi grains soak and grind fermentas we do for regular way Is there any other way to make thes idlis as rice urad dal idlis, anything other than these suggestions?

    1. Please try this recipe once and let me know.It did turn out soft n porous as u see in the picture.This proportion of rice,ragi n urad dal & proper fermentation matters here :) .No need to use soda as it is not good for health.

  24. hi chitra, if i want to make a raagi flour at home, should i soak it for a while or directly can i grind the raagi by mixer? please clarify...

    ReplyDelete

    1. No need to soak to make ragi flour.U can grind n make the flour using mixie but u should grind it very finely.Its better to grind in mill in large quantities. If u grind in mixie,sieve it twice before u use.If u want to make this idli using whole ragi,u have to soak it and grind.Hope i had cleared ur doubts :)
