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.
