How to Sprout Ragi

Ragi is easily sprouted. Simply soak overnight in filtered water. Then drain and wrap in cheesecloth. Place a damp towel on top, and place in a warm area of your home. Check after 4 hours to see if they have sprouted. They could take several more hours to actually sprout depending on temperature. Just keep checking.

Ragi Kitchari

To make kitchari with ragi, rinse ½ cup ragi with ½ cup masoor daal lentils until water is clear. Soak for 30 min to 1 hour, then drain. In a pressure cooker, heat 2 TBSP ghee, add 1 tsp whole cumin and allow them to pop. Add ragi and daal, along with 1 tsp turmeric, and pinch of hing powder. Add 2-½ cups of water and pressure cook for 5 minutes. Salt and serve with ghee, lime, yogurt, coconut flakes, and/or cilantro.

What do I do if my ragi is chewy?

Ragi is naturally a little chewy when it's cooked on the stove top. It's a little less chewy if cooked in a pressure cooker. Grinding it will certainly take away the chewiness. You can grind it in a food processor, blender, or coffee grinder. Or if you prefer, you can sprout the ragi first, dry it in the sun, and then grind it.
