In the state of Karnataka, India – Ragi flour is generally consumed in the form of ragi balls (ragi mudde). The mudde, which is prepared by cooking the ragi flour with water to achieve dough like consistency, is rolled into balls of desired size and served with sambhar/dal or other accompaniments.
Here in this recipe along with ragi flour I have included ground oats to make it more nutritious.
Millet is a wonderful cereal packed with nutrients, rich in amino acids. It is traditionally used as a weaning food for infants. Ragi does not contain gluten. so it is a good alternative for gluten free dishes.
As oats have been widely publicized for their heart-protective properties, millet is also included on list of heart – healthy and as millet is a good source of magnesium. Studies say magnesium helps to reduce the severity of asthma, reduce the frequency of migraine attacks, it also helps to lower high blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attack, especially in people with diabetic heart disease.
