ragi sandige recipe

Ragi sandige or finger millet fryum recipe explained with step by step pictures. Ragi sandige is nothig but sun dried fryum recipe prepared using ragi flour. Ragi sandige is very easy to prepare and is very tasty also.

All these sun dried items are familiar by name either sandige or happala (papad) in Kannada language. Generally during summer, varieties of sandige and happala (papad) are prepared, stored and consumed throughout the year. Especially in Malnad and Karavali region...as it rains heavily there. Munching on some spicy fryums or papads along with the lunch during those cool-cool rainy or winter days is a bliss!

Both my Mother and Mother-in-law prepares a lot of fryums and papads every year. I don't prepare them much as I get parcel from both the houses. I don't have good access to sunlight as I live in the apartment. Still I have managed to post 2 papad recipes, one sun dried potato chips recipe, one amla powder recipe and one sandige menasu (sun dried chilies) recipe on this website. Take a minute and have a look on genasina happala or sweet potato papad, halasinakai happala or raw jack fruit papad, sandige menasu, nellikai pudi or amla powder and sun dried potato chips recipes. I am planning to post many more sun dried recipes in coming days.

Preparing ragi sandige or finger millet fryum is very easy. Mix in the flour with good amount of water, cook on the stove top, add in spices of your choice and sun dry them...that's all! I have used green chili, asafoetida, salt and cumin seeds in this recipe. You can add the spices of your choice.

Ragi has numerous health benefits. You can find many ragi recipes on this website.

Ragi sandige recipe

Preparation time: 3 - 4 days
Cooking time: 10 min
Serves: 1 cup

Ingredients: (measuring cup used = 240ml)

  2. 1.5 cup water (includes the water used for grinding)
  3. 2 - 3 green chili
  4. A big pinch of asafoetida
  5. 1/2 tsp cumin seeds

  2. Add in required water and grind it for a while. Please note grinding is optional. I felt grinding everything together is easy rather crushing the chilies. After grinding keep it aside for a minimum duration of 30 minutes.grinding ragi for ragi sandige or finger millet fryum
  3. After 30 minutes, transfer it into a pan, add in remaining water and keep it for boiling. Don't reduce the water (for 1 cup of flour, 6 - 7 cups of water). If you reduce the water, fryums will turn hard.ragi batter for ragi sandige or finger millet fryum
