Nachni (Ragi) Laddu.

Ragi can be without doubt titled as a WONDER GRAIN due to the nutritious richness that it offers. While ragi is an ideal first food after an infant reaches at least 6 months of age , it can be incorporated in adult meals in many ways. Bhakri (Maharashtrian Bread) , Biscuits , porridge , Dosa , Laddu are some ways in which you may increase consumption for a healthy living.
Ingredients : (Makes 8-10 Laddu)
1 cup Ragi Flour , 1/2 cup melted ghee ,
1/2 tspn cardamon powder , 3 tbspn milk/cream,
1 cup powdered sugar.
Procedure :
Heat the ghee in a nonstick pan and add the Ragi flour to the pan. Roast the flour for 10-15 minutes on medium high heat. Keep stirring from time to time to roast the flour evenly. Add the milk/cream and quickly stir. The milk will not cook the flour but will just leave required amount of moisture to make laddu. Turn off the heat and let cool. Mix the powdered sugar and cardamon powder. When making laddus if you feel that the mixture is too dry , moisten your palms with Ghee . Do not use milk as more milk you use lesser would be the shelf life.
Variation : To add to the nutritious value you may add powdered dryfruits like cashews , almonds to the flour. However cashews /almonds release natural oils over a period of time which may considerably reduce the shelf life. You may have to refrigerate them for storage for longer periods.
