Jowari Muddi

My father used to have a lot of touring duties. Every time he went on tour the rest of us i.e. my mom, sister, brother and I used to insist of one dinner of "Muddi"!

Amma used to make "Muddi" generally out of" Jowar" flour as Jowar was something we consumed on a regular basis. You must have heard of Ragi Muddi  this is my mom's innovation out what she had and her wish that we eat healthy but something easy to make.

So the other day I decided to make it for breakfast. Since I was sure hubby dear would not eat I made only a little for my FIL and me.

My S-I-S asked me if I made it like "Ambil" which is with buttermilk. This never did occur to me I made it like "Pithla/Zunka".
May be next time……….


3 Tblsp Jowar flour mixed with ½ cup water
1 onion finely chopped
2 green chillies slit
Few springs of curry leaves
1 tsp Oil
A pinch of haldi/turmeric
¼ tsp chilli powder
2 cups water
Lemon juice (as per taste)


1.      Heat oil add mustard when it splutters add hing/asafetida, Haldi/turmeric, chilli powder in that order in quick succession.
2.     Add the chillies, curry leaves and onion.
3.     Fry till the onions turn translucent.
4.      Add the water and salt. When the water starts boiling lower the gas flame, and add the raggi mixed with water in a thin stream with one hand stirring constantly with the other see that there are no lumps. (Amma used to make with the dry flour and never get any lumps I cannot hence this process).
    5.     The mixture thickens as it cooks and becomes translucent.
    6.     Switch off the flame and serve hot garnished with lemon juice.

Should also try grated carrots, peas and spring onions next time.
