Perhaps, one of the healthiest and cleanest foods which is full of multiple nutrients, and hence it is typically consumed by hardworking farmers. Ragi Mudde is typically consumed with thin rasam known as Bassaru, or Uppesru. It is typically prepared with a bunch of fresh leafy vegetables and from the decanted water, which remains after steaming lentils.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of the Ragi Mudde Recipe and I prepare this recipe only because of my husband. Even though he is not a big fan of it, he prefers to eat this once in a while, especially to lower body heat. According to him, the ragi balls as such does not have any taste and they taste good only with a good Saaru (rasam) or palya (curry). I agree with this point, and the side compliment plays a significant role when serving finger millet balls as a 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. In addition, any spicy chicken or fish curries are also the best choice for meat lovers.

Furthermore, some important tips and suggestions 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 and may not be easy to shape. In addition, always use a strong spatula or wooden stick to beat the ragi flour. A wooden-based rolling pin can be used to beat the flour as it carries the required strength and agility. Lastly, I heavily recommend using ghee instead of oil to beat the ragi flour as it would help with digestion. Ghee is preferred but not mandatory and you may use coconut oil or any cooking oil for the same purpose.
