RAGi/ RED MILLET FLOUR PUTTU



One of my favorite breakfast recipes and this is a hit with my kids as well.  This is an ideal quick and healthy breakfast recipe for kids. I usually prepare two versions, one with sugar for the kids, and the other one with Splenda for my husband and I.  Both the versions equally taste good.

Ingredients
Ragi flour, 1 cup
Sugar or Sugar-free sweetener like sucralose, ½ cup
Grated coconut, 1-2 tablespoons, optional
Cardamom powder, ½ teaspoon
Salt, a pinch

 Procedure:
Add the flour and salt to a big bowl and mix everything well.  Sprinkle some warm water to the flour little by little and keep mixing the flour as the water is added. The consistency of the flour should not to be too wet or too dry and still be powderyOnce this is done, add the flour into a traditional puttu maker or spread it evenly on a cloth on a idli mold plate.  Steam for 15-20 minutes under medium flame.  Once the flour is cooked, let it cool a little bit, add the sweetener, cardamom powder, and grated coconut. Mix everything well and serve by itself or with sliced bananas.
