Raagi Halwa


Ragi Flour  - 1 Cup

Water  -  5 Cups

Grated Coconut  -  1 Cup

Milk  - 1 Cup

Jaggery  -  1 Cup

Cardamom Powder : 2 tsps

Ghee -  4 tsp

Almonds - 10 (Blanched and skinned)


Soak ragi flour with water for 1/2 an  hour. 

Grind with coconut and strain using a fine strainer. 

Discard the pulp. 

Add milk to the ragi+coconut liquid. 

Stir in the jaggery  till its completely dissolved. 

Put it on the stove on a low heat and keep stirring. 

Within 5 minutes, the mixture would have thickened. 

Add ghee  frequently   to ease the stirring.

Add the cardamom powder to it and keep stirring. 

Give continuous stirring  till the mixture reaches a semi solid consistency. 

Remove to a ghee  greased plate and garnish with almonds. 

Cut into pieces when cool.
