Ragi is my favorite millet! These tiny grains are a super house of nutrition. Being very rich in calcium it is excellent for kids and women. I had this ragi ladoo recipe in mind for a long time but I thought Diwali would be a good time to try this on. There are few laddu recipes for which one needs experience and is not for beginners. However, this easy ragi ladoo recipe is for those who have difficulty in getting the right ball consistency. To know more about this wonder grain you can read this.
These ragi ladoos are a perfect way to include this power grain into your kid’s diet. This is a smart way to add that extra nutrition in your child’s diet if he/she is a fussy eater.
Compared to other sweets that are filled with sugar try this zero transfat waale ragi ladoo which are a powerhouse of nutrients. I have some tips for making this easy recipe which I learned from my mom.
1. Roast the ragi nicely in low flame for at least 8-10 mins to get rid of its raw smell. Keep a low flame.
2.The moisture in the jaggery itself is enough to shape the mixture to ladoos.
