Ragi mudde meal..

While this meal was on our wish list for long, this is served in very few hotels ( we tried it in Kamat’s Yatri Niwas in Majestic area) but found on all the roadside food carts.
This is a food item unique to the state of Karnataka. It is mainly popular with the rural folk of Karnataka. It is made of ragi (finger millet) flour by pouring the flour (with some amount of salt) into boiling water and mixing the two together to make soft dough. The dough is then made into tennis-ball sized balls (which are termed as Ragi mudde) and served hot. Ragi mudde is usually eaten with ghee and sambar.

This food item is not unique to Karnataka. It is eaten in many parts of Tamil Nadu. The Tamilians call it "Kali".
