Finger Millet / Ragi / Kelvaragu Murukku | Finger Millet Recipes

Ragi murukku is a Kongu Nadu  ( region in and around Coimbatore district) special snack. This is a healthy and tasty snack which can be made quickly.

Ragi / Kelvaragu / Finger Millet Flour
½ cup
Rice Flour
½ cup
Channa Dal Flour / Kadalai Maavu
¼ cup
 1 tbsp
White Sesame Seeds
2 tesp
1 tesp
To taste
For deep fry

1. In a wide bowl, add all the ingredients except oil. Mix them well with your fingers.
2. Add water little by little and knead a soft dough.
3.Take the murukku-press and choose the design as per your wish. I used star design  (mullu murukku design).
4. Grease the murukku-press with oil, then fill the murukku-press with dough upto ¾ of the press. Press a round shape on the ladle. I used 3 ladles for quick process.
5. Heat the oil in a pan till it becomes hot or put a pinch of dough into the oil. If the dough comes up immediately, then this is the correct stage of oil heating.
6. Now flip the ladle over the oil. After a min, flip the murukku and cook till  sizzling sound reduces completely.
7. Take it out from the oil and drain them using tissue paper. Repeat this for remaining dough also. Allow it to cool down completely and store it in a air tight container.
    Tasty and healthy ragi murukku is ready to serve with tea.
1. We can get 12 large size murukku for this quantity.
2. Do not reduce the flame to sim. Leave some time gap between batches of murukku.

3. When making large number of murukkus, make the dough also in batches.
