Ammini Kozhukattai | Ragi Kozhukattai | Healthy Snack

     Ragi/Finger millet is one millet I usually include in our snack,breakfast or dinner. One day I wanted to prepare a quick and filling snack then I made this mini/mani/ammini kozhukattai. My better half didn't want to it as usual, so I  tempered the mini ragi kozhukattai and he really enjoyed it.
      I usually make ragi idiyappam when I am devoid of ideas as what to make for dinner/breakfast. I make ragi dosa and also ragi idli with ragi flour. Sometimes I make ragi roti. Remember I told you guys ragi is rich in calcium and is good for weight loss? So prepare yourself the salt version and your kids the sweet version.
Ammini kozhukattai is prepared with the leftover flour from making modak/poorna kozhukattai.
