Ragi Mudde a very helthy meal from KARNATAKA.Normaly I make ragi mudde with Bassaru a another delicious dish from Karnataka, but when i saw this combo of Ragi mudde and Massoppu in LGs Taste of Mysore long back ,I wanted to try this one and now I tried it for my RM Karnataka theem. Thank u somuch LG for such a delicious combo we loved it.Ragi Mudde, a popular food of Karnataka. It is a staple food of farmers in southern parts of Karnataka.

Add 1 cup of millet flour to boiling water & rava mixture and reduce the flame to medium,Let it cook for 3-4 mins. After 3 mins take the vessel from the stove and mix it with a wooden stick make sure that there are no lumps
Spoon the flour to a edgeless plate. Wet your hands and make a nice ball.Punch a little hole in the center and add a drop of ghee :) and serve hot! It tastes good when it is hot.
