Aadi koozh recipe
Aadi koozh is made with ragi, kezhvaragu with other ingredients like buttermilk, raw onion, green chillies. I have added raw mango and ginger to make it more tasty and flavourful.
- ¼ cup Ragi flour
- ¼ cup Curd
- ½ cup Onion chopped
- 1 Green chilli
- 1 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped
- 1 teaspoon Ginger grated
- 3 tablespoon Unripe mango chopped
- Salt - as needed
- Water - as needed
Chop finely onion, green chilli, coriander leaves, mango. Grate ginger and keep aside.
Boil 1 & ½ cup water side by side.
Dissolve ragi flour in ¾ cup water using a whisk without any lumps.
Once water starts to boil, pour the ragi, stirring simultaneously to avoid forming lumps.
Keep the flame in medium and keep stirring, as it tends to get stuck/ burn at the bottom of vessel.
Cook in medium flame until the colour changes dark and shiny. It took 5 mins for me to cook the ragi.
Switch off the stove, add chopped items and stir well. Once warm enough to handle, add buttermilk. (Beat well ¼ cup curd using a whisk until smooth. Add one cup water and make buttermilk)
- Make sure to cook in medium flame and keep stirring to avoid getting burnt at the bottom.
- My friend asked to add chopped items while cooking itself. You can try adding like that too. I was worried about mango's crunchiness, so added at the end.
