Kelvaragu/Ragi Ladoo

Now that my kids have no school and are at home, they wanted some thing sweet. So I was thinking something healthy as well delicious. That is when I wanted to make ragi ladoo.  I came across my friend Preethi’s blog. I found her ragi ladoo very interesting, she had used almond milk powder. I skipped that part and  added cardamom powder. The ladoos came out fabulous, my kids loved it. Thanks a lot Preethi. So I thought I will share it with you all. 

Here’s how to make it with step by step photos…


Ragi/Kelvaragu flour
1 cup
Grated coconut
½ cup
½ cup
4 tsp
Cardamom powder
¼ tsp
One pinch
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 12-15 minutes
Author: Priya Anandakumar


In a kadai roast the ragi flour until you get a nice aroma. Keep the stove in medium flame, do not burn the flour. Transfer the flour to a plate and keep it aside.

In the same kadai heat  1 tsp of ghee and roast the grated coconut. When the coconut starts to turn golden brown, switch off the stove, add it to ragi flour. Add cardamom powder and salt and mix everything well.

In the same kadai heat ¼ cup of water and mix the jaggery. When you get string consistency, add the ragi flour mixture, 3 tsp of ghee and stir for 2 min. Now switch off the stove.

Remove from stove, let it cool. When it is lukewarm, make balls with wet hands.

Yummy Kelvaragu/Ragi ladoo is ready, store it in airtight container. Will come back with more yummy and delicious recipes.
