Ragi Vadai Recipe

This is a very famous snack(pakoras) prepared in Coimbatore and its surroundings. Though, my mom has never made it at home, I never missed to taste this yummy Ragi Vadai whenever we visited my grandma's house.You can make it either way- soft or crunchy. We prepare it crunchy.This is my DH's most favorite snack and he demands for it whenever it rains :)and its raining here today :). Adding roasted gram is optional, but we do add it for extra crunchiness and we prefer it spicy. The chillies really enhance the taste :) and we love it.

Ragi Vadai Recipe


  • 1 cup ragi flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered dalia(pottukadalai)
  • one handful of roasted gram(split)
  • a small bunch of coriander leaves(finely chopped).
  • 1 big onion (finely chopped)
  • 3 green chillies or more(finely chopped)
  • handful of curry leaves(chopped)
  • Water(enough to bind all these into a pakora dough- not too thick, not too thin)
  • salt.
  • Oil(for deep fat frying)


  • In a wide mixing bowl, add the ragi flour, rice flour, enough salt and powdered roasted gram. Slowly, add water to it and make into a dough(not too stiff, not too soft). Add the onion,green chillies, coriander leaves, curry leaves and finally the roasted gram.
  • Heat oil at medium flame and once it is hot, drop a tiny bit of dough to the  oil and it should raise on top immediately. That is when the oil is ready and start dropping small piece dough little by little in small batches.Take a small piece of the dough flatten it with the thumb and drop in the oil.
  • Fry  in the oil at low medium heat until the bubbles sound stops. This makes the crunchy pakoras. Be careful with the heat. Cooking on high heat will burn the outer portion of pakoras. Reduce and increase the flame as and when needed.
  • Serve it hot with coffee or tea. YUMMY !!!

Choco -Milk Burfi

Hi all :) I am back with my first post at the end of this year ;) finally yeahhhhhhh finally......thought let me log in to my blog ;) and post something.

This is just the replication of the recipe I found in Sailajas blog,except for the very minimal changes.


4 cups Dry Mik powder(I used nestle's)
1 cup All purpose Flour
1 cup or more Sugar 
1 Pint Heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup Chocolate chips(Semi sweet or milk choco chip)
1/4 cup of milk(if needed)
Ghee-1tsp to grease the tray

1.Mix Dry milk powder,all purpose flour,sugar and whipping cream without any lumps.I found the mixture to be a very thick batter ,so added a 1/4 cup of milk to it.
2.Grease a tray with ghee and keep it aside
3.In a microwave safe glass bowl ,put this mixture and at microwave HIGH cook for 8 minutes at 1 minute intervals,Taking out and stirring for each and every 1 minute.
4.It must have become frothy at the 8 th minute.If it does n't add another minute or two with the same 1 minute interval.
5.Pour 1/2 of the mixture into a greased tray and spread evenly.A silicon spatula does a good job :)
6.Immediately add the chocolate chips to the rest of the mixture and stir well.
7.Pour it on top of the white part.(Again,get the help of a silicon spatula)
8.Let it cool to room temperature,then refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours hours or until done.
9.Cut it to desired shapes.Keep it refrigerated before serving.

  • I was not able to cut peferct shape from the tray ;)so,what I did is after slicing them into squares,I again sliced the sides to get the perfect shape :) and I loved it :)
  • Do not slice it at room temperature. It is highly recommended to slice it after refrigerating it. 
  • Make sure the mixture is taken out from the microwave after it becomes frothy and moves from the sides.
