honestly, i am not a big fan of ragi ball recipe and i prepare this recipe only because of my husband. even he is not a big fan of it, but he prefers to eat this once in a while, especially to lower the body heat. according to him, the ragi ball as such does not have any taste and it tastes good only with a good saaru (rasam) or palya (curry). i totally agree to this point, and the side compliment plays a significant role when served finger millet ball as meal. i typically, prepare normal rasam with some garlic seasoning as a side dish, but any coconut based sambar recipe should go well with this recipe.

furthermore, some important tips and suggestion for a perfect ragi mudde recipe. firstly, always use a heavy bottomed vessel to prepare and steam the millet balls. otherwise, the finger millet may stick to the bottom. in addition, always use a strong spatula or wooden stick to beat the ragi flour. even wooden based rolling pin can be used to beat the flour. further, i heavily recommend to use ghee instead of oil to beat the ragi flour as it would help with the digestion.
