Ragi Sunnundalu ( Finger Millet Jaggery Balls)

Ragi is rich in calcium, protein, iron and is also a good source of fiber. It is said to be good for diabetic patients also.

Ingredients for Ragi Sunnundalu :

Finger Millet Flour (Ragi Flour) : 1 cup
Grated Jaggery : 1 cup
Melted Ghee : 1/2 cup

To prepare Ragi Sunnundalu :

1. Grate or cut the jaggery.
2. Dry roast Ragi flour in low flame, till gets the aroma of it.
3. Switch off the flame and let it cool for 10 mins.
4. Make Jaggery syrup by adding required amount of water. Mix jaggery syrup and Ragi flour.
5. Melt the ghee and add it to the above mixture. Make laddus of desired size. For each laddu wet the hand with ghee and make them, so that making laddus will be easy.  Keep them in an air tight container and serve them.

Tips / Notes:

  • We can make these laddus with Ragi flour and sugar as we did it now. When we use sugar make it powder and to make laddu use melted Ghee.
  • We can mix the sugar and Ragi flour without adding ghee and keep it for further use also.
  • When ever plan to make laddus just add melted ghee and make them.
