Ragi/ Muthari Kinnathappam - My 1st guest post for The Big Sweet Tooth

                                           Eid Mubarak to all my readers....

            My today's recipe is a guest post for my dear co-blogger Rafeeda who shares her lovely recipes and insightful thoughts in her beautiful space "The Big Sweet Tooth"...Check her space for recipes which are easy to follow and simple to try out..
         Coming to today’s recipe, it is a sweet dish ‘Raagi/Muthari Kinnathappam’ . This is the simplified version of the traditional Kinnathappam, which is prepared using raw rice, jaggery and coconut milk, which is very time consuming process and involves lot of heavy stirring. But the version I am sharing here today is slightly different and comparatively easy to prepare...Click here to see the detailed recipe for this...


½ kg ragi/ muthari/ finger millet
½ kg jaggery
5-6 cups of coconut milk
about 3 cups of water
¼ cup kadalaparippu/ chana dal
½ tsp cardamom powder
2-3 tbsp ghee

  1. Wash and soak ragi in water for atleast 2 hour . Drain it and then grind it in a blender adding about 1 1/2-2 cup of water.
  2. Strain the prepared ragi mixture through a sieve and squeeze out all its extract and keep it aside.
  3. Cook chana dal adding little water till soft and keep it aside. Do not overcook.
  4. Melt jaggery by adding ½-1 cup of water and strain it to remove impurities and keep it aside.
  5. Heat a large thick bottomed vessel/ pan and add the extracted ragi mixture, jaggery syrup, 4 cups of coconut milk and 1 cup of water and stir continuously at medium heat using a long thick stirrer/ spatula.
  6. Keep stirring and make sure the mixture will not stick into the vessel.
  7. When the mixture starts thickening, add remaining coconut milk and cardamom powder and mix well. Add ghee to the sides of the vessel and stir continuously.
  8. Then add the cooked chana dal and mix well till it forms a thick consistency.
  9. Switch off the flame and transfer it to a greased plate/ pan and flatten smoothly to form the shape of the pan.
  10. Allow to cool completely and then cut into desired size pieces and serve...
  • The whole process of cooking will takes at least 1 hour and needs continuous stirring...Keeps everything ready before starting the cooking.
