Ragi Chakli Recipe

Ragi or finger millet is protein and calcium rich and is the staple food of the farmers in Karnataka. A variety of preparations are made from it. Finger millet is also the first choice as infant food as it is easily digestible. Today I have posted chakli made from it.


  • 1cup Ragi/finger millet
  • 1/4th cup urad dal
  • 2 lime sized lumps butter
  • 1/2 tsp chilly powder
  • 1 tsp jeera/cumin
  • 1tsp thil/sesame
  • Salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk.

Method :
Soak the ragi overnight. Grind to a smooth paste and strain it through a cloth. Allow to stand overnight. Decant the water on the top. Put the sediment in a cloth and allow all the water to drain. Roast the urad dal over a slow flame till it turns a deep golden brown. Add the roasted urad dal powder and all the other ingredients and knead into a soft dough with the coconut milk. Add water only if required. Put the dough into the chakli mould and spread chakli on a plastic sheet. Heat oil. Deep fry the chaklis till crisp.
