  • Ragi Semiya – 1 packet
  • Mustard seeds – 1/5 tsp
  • Urud dal – 1/4 tsp
  • Channa dal – 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves – 1 spring
  • Onion – 2 small sized chopped finely
  • Green chillis – 3 chopped finely
  • Ginger – 1/2 inch chopped finely
  • Garlic – 4 to 5 cloves chopped nicely
  • Hing – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – as per taste + 3/4 tsp while cooking the semiya
  • Coriander leaves – for garnishing
  1. Add the uncooked Ragi Semiya to a big bowl and add 3/4tsp of salt. Add the boiling water, till it covers the Semiya fully.
  2. Now close the vessel and let it rest for 5 min. Leave it only for 5 min otherwise it might become so mushy. (Or check the instructions given in the packet)
  3. Filter the content and keep aside. Now transfer the content to the Idli plates and steam cook for another 5 min as we cook the idlis.
  4. Remove from the idli cooker and allow to cool down.
  5. Now in a pan, add oil and when hot add the mustard seeds. When it splutters add the Urud dal, channa dal and curry leaves. When they turn light brown, add the onion, ginger, garlic and green chillies. Fry them nicely till the onions become translucent. Now add the cooked semiya.
  6. Keep mixing the semiya till it gets mixed fully with other ingredients. This takes just 2 to 3 min.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with groundnut chutney.
