Ragi Puttu, Finger Millet puttu, how to prepare Kerala Ragi Puttu in idli stand

Today's recipe is Kerala Ragi Puttu in idli stand. Finger Millet is also called as ragulu in Telugu, kezhvaragu or  keppa in Tamil.  Generally puttu is prepared using puttu kudam called puttu vessel.  Ragi Puttu is popular breakfast recipe @ Kerela. It is prepared using finger millets/ Ragi powder, coconut, jaggery or sugar. This is very easy to prepare and very healthy as well as tasty too. Transferring different places will not only make you learn many things will also make you taste different food😍😋. I learned this Ragi Puttu recipe from my tenant Aswini, she use to prepare this puttu regularly. We can also prepare rice flour puttu too. We can also prepare ragi mudde or ragi sangati or ragi kali with Ragi flour which is very healthy.
