Ragi N Wheat Coconut Noodles/Ragi N Wheat Coconut String Hopper

Most of us would have had r tried either ragi string hoppers or wheat string hoppers, but i combined both flours to prepare this delicious, healthy dish..my mom used to make sweet version of ragi string hopper n savoury wheat string hoppers, initially i want to prepare wheat string hoppers but almost a cup of ragi flour was laying in my fridge since quite a long n i thought of mixing both the wheat n ragi flours together n finish them as savoury breakfast by adding the tempered coconut pieces as we do for coconut rice...they tastes delicious without any side dish, if u need any side dish u can have this with any sort of chutneys, y not simply with sugar, sometimes sugar suits prefectly for certain breakfast dishes, this ragi n wheat noodles suits prefectly for snacks too...


1cup Ragi Flour
1cup Wheat flour
1/4cup Rice flour
2tsbp Oil
1+1/4cup Hot water
Salt

For Tempering:
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Urad al
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
2nos Dry red chillies
1/4cup Grated fresh coconut
3nos Curry leaves
Oil

Sieve the flours together and dry roast them n keep aside, add the hot water, salt n oil to the flour n knead them as soft dough..take the muruku press, grease the pressing machine..use the small dot like nozzle to make this string hoppers...take a small quantity of the dough into the presser, press over the greased idly plates as small circles...Steam cook them for about 10 minutes...keep aside n let them cool...just separated the noodles with ur finger n make them as medium small pieces...

Heat oil in a kadai, add the mustard seeds,urd dal, asafoetida powder,curry leaves n red chillies n fry them until they turns brown...add the grated coconut to the tempering n stir everything for a while,now add the cooked ragi noodles to the kadai, toss them gently for few minutes...

Serve hot with any choice of chutneys r else can have them alone!!!

  1. I have made/eaten only rice noodles, making them with ragi-wheat is much more nutrious.
    Looks delicious Priya.

  2. Ragi noodles is a nice diet recipe. I tried it with ragi alone , long back. But ur version seems lovely.
    One qn: I have never made noodles with wheat. Have u tried that? If so, Is it difficult to press by hand through our murukku press?
    In ur free time, pls clarify me:) Thanks.
