Ragi Rava Upma

My latest favourite is this ragi rava,i picked a packet of this healthy rava before a month for the sake of giving a trial, but finally i got hooked to them and this time while we went to the Indian grocery,i came back home with two packets of this ragi rava. Actually this rava is completely prepared with the healthy and nutritious finger millet aka ragi.

You can make any food with this ragi rava, i tried instant idlis and this upma till now,both these dishes turned out fabulous and my next trial is to make some savoury cake or muffins with this grain,let me see how its turns out.Healthy dish to kick start your day, i used gingelly oil for preparing this upma and the addition of gingelly oil gives a wonderful flavour to this beautiful healthy dish.Sending this muffins to my own event CWS-Ragi or Quinoa guest hosted by my dear sister Divya.


1cup Ragi rava
1no Onion (big & chopped finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Ginger (minced)
1tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Channadal
3nos Dry red chillies
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Few Curry leaves
2cups Water
 1tbsp Gingelly oil
Salt

Dry roast the ragi rava in a pan until a nice aroma comes out.

Heat the gingelly oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, urad dal,channadal,dry red chillies,fry until they turns brown.

Add now the sliced onions,grated ginger,curry leaves and slit opened green chillies,sauté until the onions turns transculent.

Immediately add the salt, cook for few seconds, add the water and bring everything to boil..

Add now the roasted ragi rava to the cooking veggies, stir continously until the ragi rava gets well cooked,put off the stove.

Serve hot with chutney.

  41. Hi
    Ragi rava is not available every where, can we grind ragi and make rava from it? Need some idea on the size-
    Coarsely powdered - bombay rava consistency- idly rava consistency(!) please guide so that we can grind in mixie.
    Also let me know if it could be made with out onions
    Thanks

  42. Hello Lakshmi..

    Yea you can make your own ragi rava at home,but make not too coarse or else too powder, however i'll advice you to make with less quantity of ragi to get an better idea about rava.

    Yes you can skip onions and use veggies or tomatoes to make them.
