Cooking Time: 5-7
1 cup ragi flour
5 cups water
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
3/4 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 green chilli, slit and halved
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp carrots, grated
2 tbsp cilantro (coriander leaves), finely chopped
1 tsp lemon or lime juice (optional)
Salt to taste
2 tsp vegetable oil
Place the grated carrots in a microwave-safe bowl,
sprinkle some water
and cover and steam in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. Remove and let
Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the mustard and cumin
seeds and fry
until they start to pop.
Add the green chillies and saute for a few seconds.
Add the turmeric
and chilli powders along with salt and 1 tbsp cilantro leaves. Add 5
cups of water and let it
come to a boil.
In the meantime, add a little water to the ragi flour
and make a thick
(of pouring consistency), adding a little water at a time, and
smoothing out any lumps.
When the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to
low, and pour in the
ragi paste slowly, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming,
and cook for 2-3 minutes until the raw flavor is gone.
Add some more water to the ragi porridge if needed to
get the consistency you want.
Serve the ragi porridge immediately in a bowl.
Garnish with steamed carrot and cilantro, and a dash
of lemon or lime juice.
