Finger Millet (English) is known as Ragi in Kannada and Kezhvaragu or keppai in Tamil. It is a rich source of calcium, iron, fiber and other minerals. We include ragi in our diet often mainly due to its high nutritional content, especially iron and calcium. This sweet adai is very filling and extremely nutritious. It can be had for breakfast or even as an evening snack. It is very healthy and can be given to children after they get back from school. It Learn how to make Ragi Sweet Adai following this easy recipe.
In a plate, mix together ragi flour, crushed cardamom and grated coconut.
Heat 2-3 tbsp of water, add jaggery to it and switch off the flame. Dissolve jaggery and filter it to remove impurities.
Add the jaggery water to the ragi + coconut + cardamom mixture.
Mix it well.
If needed add more warm water to form a soft and smooth dough. Divide it into 2 equal sized balls.
Grease a plantain leaf or a ziplog bag with a drop of ghee and flatten the ragi ball with your fingers. Spread it into thin (not too thin) adai.
Grease a tawa with ghee and heat it. Transfer the flattened ragi adai to your hand and then place it on the hot tawa. If you had flattened it on plantain leaf, you can place the adai on the tawa (adai facing down) with the leaf and then slowly remove the leaf.
Drizzle a tsp of ghee around the adai and cook both sides of the adai until done. (the color of the adai will change from light brown to dark brown once it is cooked). Repeat the same process for the rest of the dough.
Enjoy it hot. You do not need any side dish for this.
Note - You can also flatten the ragi dough directly on the tawa itself before heating it. But you have to wait for the tawa to cool down before flattening the next adai or you can have a spare tawa.
Variations - You can also add more water and make small dosas for kids.
