Ragi mudde or Finger millet/Ragi sangati

Ingredients:
Ragi flour-1 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Water-3 cups
Cooked rice-2 tbsp
Recipe:
Take a deep bottom pan preferably with a handle to hold it.
To that add water,cooked rice and 1 tsp ragi flour,salt Don't mix and allow
it to boil.
Once it is boiled add remaining ragi flour and now also dont mix.
The boiling water will cover up entire ragi flour.
Finally when almost entire ragi is inside, just use a wooden rod or a
wooden chapathi roller and mix nicely. You need to put a little effort to mix
as it tends to be sticky.
After mixing sprinkle let it again cook on a very slow flame for around 4-5
mins
Now scoop off the mixture from pan and put it on a plate and start making
balls (tennis ball shape). To make the balls you should be capable to handle
the heat.
Dip hands in cold water and just roll into ball shape in between your
palms.
Ragi balls are ready to serve. Serve with any hot n spicy sambhar. I
prepared Onion sambhar :)

avoiding any lump formation during the process
