  1. This is something i've been wanting to try for long - will definitely try the kaaram version.

  2. I love the spicy version. Never heard of a sweet ragi rotti!! Mustn't show this to J tho!!! The man won't leave me in peace!!

  3. I used to make these rotis when I was in Hyd we had lil ingredients and those were the easiest ones to make!!!

  4. Never tried Ragi roti. Looks really good..Will have to try soon !

  5. Sharmilee, I think I would like the sweet version very much. Thanks for sending it to the event. Kindly link back to the event announcement.

  6. wow this is healthy an tasty.

  7. hi sharmilee,i've tried this karam recipe last sunday...but it was not that gud.... :-( the center portion remained uncooked,though i heated it for a long time.the color and flavor was gud...i hav to try it again in some other weekend.

  8. @Geetha: Try to flatten them thin so that it cookes well. I guess u might have it lil thick in the middle and tats is y i didnt get cooked well.Try it this way and see

  9. Hi sharmilee, I tried this at home and came out very well. Its become a regular dish for dinner now. Pre-roasting and mixing with hot water makes ragi rotisserie softer and tastier. Thank you somuch.

  10. ragi rotti and akki rotti are Karnataka special. originated in karnatka. you can get it from Adiga restaurant in Bengaluru.

  11. In the karam version we do it by adding little ginger as it will be easy for digestion. Vegetables like carrot can be added for extra taste

  12. Tried it and it turned out superb!!!
