Ragi sweet Kozhukattai/Finger Millets Dumplings/Ragi Modak

Finger Millet (English) is known as Ragi in Kannada and Kezhvaragu or keppai in Tamil. It is a rich source of calcium, iron, fiber and other minerals. We include ragi in our diet often mainly due to its high nutritional content, especially iron and calcium.

This sweet kozhukattai is very filling and extremely nutritious. It can be had for breakfast or even as an evening snack. It is very healthy and can be given to children after they get back from school.

I like Raagi Pidi kozhukattai than modak, our neighbor used to give us this along with other yummy Ganesh Chaturthi goodies and I always liked raagi kozhukattai. It not only healthy, easy recipe to prepare but also taste yum. This also makes a quick and delicious snack for kids or for tea time. Check out Ragi Kuzhi Paniyaram/
