Ragi Ladoo Recipe with step by step pictures

After a day’s break, I am here with yet another millet based recipe . I have chosen whole grains for this month and will be focusing on Millets. This is a part of the Mega Blogging Marathon that I am taking part in. To know more please head over to the intro post

So here is the dish of the day- a ladoo with finger millet flour.I have already posted a version of this dish and today I am here with another one. This one has ragi flour, coconut , sesame seed and unrefined cane sugar / karumbu sakarai.


Usually after lunch I feel like munching something. That something is preferably a sweet!! I know this is not a very good habit.So instead of munching on chocolates/ other sweets / bream biscuits, I make these kind of ladoos that are made of healthy ingredients and way better than the store bought sweets.

Ragi Ladoo Recipe

A healthy dessert recipe.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Author: PJ
Ingredients
  • 1 cup Ragi flour
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut, grated
  • 1/2 cup Cane sugar/ Karumbu sakkarai
Instructions
  1. In a pan roast the ragi flour on low flame for a couple of minutes till the raw smell goes. Transfer onto a plate.

  2. Toast sesame seed till they start popping and transfer to the plate. 

  3. In the same pan toast coconut till the moisture is gone and remove from the pan. 

  4. Transfer this mixture into a mixie jar and add the unrefined cane sugar / karumbu sakkarai

  5. Powder and transfer to a plate. Immediately start making ladoo as the residual heat from grinding the mixture is sufficient to let it hold the shape. For the last three ladoos alone I sprinkled a little milk to make the ladoo. They are a little darker in color.

  6. Serve/ store in an air tight container.

Recipe Notes
  • You can use desiccated coconut too instead of toasting fresh coconut.
  • Also when using fresh coconut, ensure that the moisture has evaporated .Else teh ladoo may spoil fast.
  • Adjust the sweetener to suit your taste.

  1. Ragi ladoos sound great with the addition of coconut and sesame seeds . Can we use sugar or regular jaggery for these ladoos ? I guess with sugar we might need some ghee or milk for binding. Health packed ladoos .

  2. Oh my, these ladoos look fabulous .. I am a core believer that health and taste should go hand in hand, and this is a perfect recipe to go by the saying !! I loving all your sweets with jaggery making it more healthy and delicious too !! So perfectly done, kudos to you !!

  3. Wow! these are my favorite kind, PJ. Love the grainy feel and the taste of jaggery lingering. To add sesame to it is to just up the flavor quotient!!

  4. Lovely looking ladoo with ragi flour PJ. Loved the addition of coconut and sesame seeds — they add nice flavor to this ladoo. Also making them with ragi flour is so convenient and easy.

  5. Great recipe with ragi. These would be perfect for an after workout snack. I am always looking for something healthier to eat after I come back from gym and this would work perfect for my sweet tooth as well.

  6. Lovely color, ladoos are my all time favorite sweets! i have a packet of ragi huri hittu flour, need to use it up fast, you are giving me ideas to make some ladoos with it!!!! Guilt free treat!
