    With ragi you can prepare roti, dosa, pakkoda, murukku , kali etc.

    For Roti, take required qty. of ragi flour .
    To this add chopped onion, curry leaves,coriander leaves and green chilly or chilly powder, required salt.Add water to this and prepare a dough.
    Then apply oil to the dosa tava and some oil in your fingers and pat a small ball of this dough into a roti. turn to the other side.
    apply oil to both the sides and remove once it is cooked.
    The roti will take some extra time to get cooked.


    For dosa, same ingredients as roti.
    But pour water and make it to the ordinary dosa batter consistency.
    While preparing the dosa you have to pour the batter starting from the edges towards the centre of the tawa, not in the centre as for the normal dosa.
    For extra softness we can add one or two ladle of regular dosa batter to 2 cups of ragi batter.


    For pakkoda,
    mix ragi flour, chopped onion, chopped green chilli , ginger, curry and coriander leaves and salt to taste and 1 or 2 teaspoons rice flour(if u wish).
    Sprinkle water and mix these together to a consitency you wish.
    Then deep fry this in oil in shapes you like or just pinch it into small pieces and fry in the oil.


    But if the water is less then the pakkoda will consume less oil and also it will be crispy.

    For preparing kali, Boil 2 cups of water.
    Add one cup of ragi flour to the boiling water and mix it thoroughly .
    Mix it often till it comes to a pongal like consistency.
    If it is not cooked well add another 1/2 cup of water.

    To this you can add salt if you like to have it with any side dish.
    You can also make it sweet by adding powdered jaggery.
