Ragi Puttu

This is an easy & healthy evening snack & can be prepared for breakfast as well.

Ingredients:
Ragi flour - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar - 1/2 cup (or more per taste)
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Cardamom (Elakkai) - 1
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cashewnuts - 5 (optional)
Salt - 1 pinch (or per taste)
Water - 2-3 tbsps

Method:
First take the Ragi flour in a wide vessel.Add salt to the dry flour and mix it well.
Now start to sprinkle little water at a time (about 1 tsp) and mix it with the flour gently using your fingers.
Keep doing it until you get to the consistency*, where the flour mixture shouldn't be too wet or too dry.
* It should stay in whole if you take the flour into your palm and press it, but when you try to break it, it should fall apart without sticking too much.
Now take a damp cloth and put the flour in it and steam cook this in an Idli cooker for about 10 -12 minutes. You can use a pressure cooker as well.
After it's done, remove it from the cooker and transfer the flour into a clean vessel and break any lumps if you find. Let this flour cool completely.
While the flour is cooling, take a pan and fry the cashewnuts (broken into small pieces) with a tsp of ghee.
Now add this cashew pieces, the left over ghee, grated coconut, crsuhed cardamom & sugar to the flour.
Mix them all well with a spoon and check for sweetness. Add more sugar if needed according to your taste.
Ragi puttu is now ready!. Enjoy! Big smile

That sounds really easy and nutritious, Supree!  Let me see if I have any ragi flour in the pantry, otherwise I can buy some today and try it out this evening itself.  Thanks, Supree.

Sure Eljayma, You are welcome.
Yes, It's a very easy one. Please give it a try whenever you can!
 
My mom used to make it a lot when I was a kid as I like it very much. Smile  But now, unfortunately none other than me in my family eat this with great interest. So me not making it very often as I wish I can. Cry

Last week, found nice & fresh blueberries on a great deal at our local farmers market. Since my son had refused to eat them as such, decided to hide it in one of his favorite treats - muffin!
So, here comes the recipe for a yummy blueberry muffin that I tried. (Source: Searched the net for several muffin recipes of this kind and ended up with this version.)
 
Blueberry Muffins
 
Ingredients
All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup 
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Vegetable oil - 1/3 cup 
Egg - 1
Milk - 1/3 cup 
Blueberries (Fresh) - 1 cup
 
For (Crumb) Topping:
Sugar - 1/4 cup
All purpose flour - 1/4 cup or less
Butter - 2 thin slices (about 1/8 cup)
Ground cinnamon - 3/4 tsp
 
Method
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease muffin pan or line with muffin liners.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup sugar, salt and baking powder.
Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup. Add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup.
Mix this with the flour mixture. Now fold in blueberries gently.
Do not mix the batter too much which could make your muffins settle too much, not fluffy.
Fill muffin cups right to the top, and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.
To Make Crumb Topping:
Mix together 1/4 sugar, flour, butter slices, and cinnamon.
Mix with fork, and sprinkle over muffins before baking.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
Enjoy the muffins! Smile
 
Note: This above measurement yields 6 large muffins.
Variation: Can replace the blueberries with 1 cup of mini chocolate chips and am sure kids would love it!

Hi Friends,
How are you all doing? Hope all is well.
Long time, since we visited this thread I guess...   So, it's time for an Instant Sweet item!  
 
Quick/Instant Rasamalai
 
You need:
Rasagullas Can - 1
(Available at any Indian Store)
Half & half milk - 4 Cups
Chopped pistachios - 1/4 Cup
Sugar - 4 tbsp (or more per taste)
 
Method:
Open can and drain all the sugar syrup. - Squeeze out the sugar syrup from each rasgulla by gently pressing, make sure not to break them.
Bring the half and half milk to one boil and reduce to simmer.
Now add Sugar & Chopped pistachios and stir well.
Switch off the stove and let it cool for 15 minutes.
When it's slightly warm add the rasgullas one by one and cool completely.
Keep refrigerated until time to serve.
Enjoy! Big smile
