Blogging Marathon# 32: Day 10 Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh Dish: R for Ragi Barley Sankati
Letter R stands for ingredients like Raagi (finger millet), Rawa etc. Today’s dish Ragi-Barley Sankati is a slight modification to Ragi Sankati that is made widely in A.P.
I didn’t taste ragi sankati until a couple of years ago when e were visiting India, my aunt brought us hot ragi sankati for breakfast one day. I’ve seen it on many blogs, but never tried to make it myself. Once I tasted my aunt’s version I was hooked. I bought a packet of ragi flour to try in my own kitchen. Then I found Valli’s quick and easy pressure cooker version of ragi sankati and have been making it ever since.
I saw the recipe for this Ragi-Barley Sankati on one of the Telugu cooking shows and I really wanted to try it. It’s perfect when served at room temperature on a hot summer day. Both Barley & Ragi are considered healthy and the combination is both tasty and nutritious. Topping the sankati with a dollop of yogurt and chopped red onions is my favorite part of the whole meal.
