Ragi Ladoo | Healthy ragi ladoo with popped ragi and jaggery
A healthy and nutritious ladoo with popped ragi,coconut and jaggery
Ragi ladoo is a delicious and easy to make sweet dish with ragi/finger millet,grated coconut and jaggery solution. It is a common traditional sweet of south india. Ragi is a very healthy and calcium rich cereal which is good equally for both kids and adults. Usually we make ragi ladoo with ragi flour. But here I tried a new method made ladoo with popped ragi(dry roast). This will give a nice aroma and crunchiness to the ladoo. Few days back I have posted rava ladoo with jaggery which is also a very tasty and easy to make sweet. I would like to share some sweet recipes like maa laddu/ pottukadala laddu,Wheat flour laddu,ragi laddu,sweet mixute with carrot and coconut,milk chocolate pudding,sooryakala,sweet paniyaram
How to make Ragi Ladoo
2 cup of ragi
1 1/2 cup of coconut
250g of jaggery
Heat a nonstick pan and dry roast ragi till it pop (till most of the ragi balls started to pop like a popcorn). Fry in medium flame. Stir continuously. Do not take out hands. Remove from flame and allow to cool.
Make jaggery solution ( 2 cup of jaggery powder 1 cup of water). Boil till the jaggery solution thickens and starts to stick in your fingers.
Powder popped ragi to smooth powder. I used small jar of mixer grinder.
Add the hot jaggery solution little by little to the powdered ragi and mix well. Add coconut and mix well with hands. If you are able to make ladoo, stop adding jaggery solution.
Allow to cool for 2 minutes and soon make ladoo from the mixture. This ladoo will be little crunchy am sure your kids will love this.
Store in airtight container.
