  • 1 cup whole ragi
  • water as needed


  • Soak ragi overnight, rinse it well then drain water and transfer to hot box set aside undisturbed for 8 hrs you will see small sprouts coming out.
  • Now transfer this mixture to a mixer jar and grind it and extract thick milk, use a strainer to extract milk. Then again add little more water and extract milk.
  • I always extract milk twice. Now transfer the extracted milk to a bowl and keep it undisturbed for 15mins.You can see clear water floating on top. Slowly drain the clear water alone. Then you will be left out with only thick milk
  • Now pour the thick ragi milk to a flat bottomed wide tray. Let it dry under the sun for at least 2 days until it becomes dry completely and starts to show splits. I broke them roughly.
  • Transfer the broken pieces to a mixer jar and grind it to a fine powder. Roast the powder for 3-5mins just until the heat gets onto the flour.
  • Cool down and then store.


  • You can stop with step1 ,spread sprouted ragi in a plate,dry it completely then give to mill for grinding.
  • Extract milk twice to get a semi thick milk.
  • If you are doing in bulk and storing roasting is must.Just roast for few mins thats enough.
  • This keeps well for 2-3 months, but do the roasting.
  • Use a clean dry spoon for scooping.No need to sieve as the powder will be very fine.
