Ragi Sankati / Finger Millet Dumplings


The Rice Ragi Balls is a super nutritious and an extremely healthy recipe. It is a traditional dish that I’ve been hearing from childhood, but never got a chance to taste it.
Finally…my MIL introduced this to me with Fish Pulusu as a side dish …n must say I was drooling for more. The combination with which these ragi balls are eaten makes the whole difference.
We usually prepare this with Natu kodi pulusu , Chicken Pulusu ,Fish Pulusu and Anapaginjala Pulusu.

Ingredients :

Ragi Flour – 1.5 to 2 cups
Rice – 1 cup (soaked for atleast 30min)
Water – 4 cups
Salt – as required

Method:

Cook rice in a pressure cooker upto 3 whistles  OR take a heavy bottomed vessel and boil 5 cups water. Add the soaked rice along with little salt.
Cook till the rice looks mashed.
Check if the rice still has water, else add 1/2 cup water . Add ragi flour to this (DO NOT MIX NOW) and close the lid.
After 5 to 10min, mix the ragi flour and cooked rice briskly.
Once done, make balls immediately by dipping your hands in a bowl of water.
Poke a hole in the centre of the ball and pour good amount of ghee in it.
Pinch the ball from the sides ,dip it in the ghee and then dip it in the side dish…n thats Ragi rice ball for you.
