Default Raagi Mudde it is!

Now all this talk about Raagi Mudde has made my mouth water and I decided to try. Now the question is who is treating me to it.

P.S: I don't know what is Raagi Mudde and hence would a littlemore description with pictures would be highly appreciated.

Ragi mudde (in kannada) also Ragi Sangati(in telugu) is a wholesome meal in Karnataka and Rayalaseema region in India. It is mainly popular with the rural folk of Karnataka. In Tamil, especially in Western Tamil Nadu it is called Ragi Kali.

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 a soft dough. The dough is then made into tennis-ball sized balls (mudde) and served hot. Ragi mudde is usually eaten with sambar. It can also be eaten with curd. Adding boiled rice to the mixture is a variation in the preparation of Ragi Mudde. The speciality of the dish is that is dipped in sambar or saaru and swallowed.

Ragi mudde is a wholesome food and is a storehouse of numerous nutrients.

This food is also good for diabetic patients and most doctors recommend this

@Avi bhai- Not an appealing pic, but melts in your mouth when served with desi ghee.

Guys, don't get too exited about Ragi mudde, you will be thoroughly disappointed.

Its just ragi powder which is mixed with hot water and cooked while stirring at the same time. It is not even supposed to be chewed, but only swallowed. The real taste is of the gravy accompanying the mudde which,most of the time will be a non-veg gravy.

You are supposed to break a bit of the ragi mudde, dip it in gravy and swallow. Be careful when doing that, as it will be hot.

Default My Tryst with Haleem Haven

After hearing so many rave reviews about Haleem in the old city, me and a friend decided to visit the primary outlets like Shadab, Pista House, Shah Ghouse and Deccan Paradise.

We started off from my house at 10.15 PM but traffic was horrible after Karachi Bakery and we could only reach Shah Ghouse by 11PM. Ordered 1 plate amongst both of us and the innumerable small bones in the serving just turned off my friend. They should be for this kind of blasphemous act on Irani Haleem. The taste was ok but nothing great. Rating 2.5/5

We decided to skip Pista House as their boxes are available all over the city and instead headed to Shadab. Shadab haleem was of the right consistency and slightly spicy with the flavour of the meat coming out in every morsel. Seemed that the meat had got thoroughly mixed with the wheat and give this consistency and flavour. The presence of whole black pepper also added to the flavour. And not to forget, not a single bone pieces big or small.
Rating 4.5/5

Now need to taste Pista House and ITC Haleem. Anybody got any 50%-100% off coupons left

Thanks to my Maid, yesterday we got to eat some amazing Jawari Roti's. Mom finds it hard to make Jawari Roti's & I would rather not eat it than bothering her to make it. Our Maid was a boon in disguise.

Mom wanted to have a couple of Jawari Roti's & Maid promised us to make them. As I was on WFH yesterday, I ensured that the Jawari Roti's plan was executed.

Mom being a Veggie, opted for a Veg Curry & I being a pure Non-Veggie, opted for a Mutton Curry. My main task was to hand over the mutton & the flour to her. Rest all was taken care of. The only thing I told her was the mutton curry should be spicy, as in REAL SPICY.

These Maid's generally make amazing mutton curry & this was one of those amazing mutton curries i've ever eaten.

Amazing Mutton Curry + Hot Jawari Roti's = HEAVENLY EXPERIENCE.

To cool down the burning sensation in tummy due to the overly spiced up Mutton Curry, we ventured out till Nampally to have Mango Ice Cream at Famous.

This whole thing was followed by Mutton Biryani at Home for Dinner.

Utilized the WFH Opportunity to the best possible extent.

From yesterday, I decided to eat one haleem every day till it gets over.

Last evening, after the gym went to Cafe Bahar and took one as take away. It was simply delicious, almost no bones, loaded with ghee and smooth. Not very thick but, very very nice.

They were looking at me and giggling amongst themselves. Maybe because i was in my gym attire ( shorts and tee). They probably were thinking "gym complete hone ke baad sedhe haleem khane aa gaya yeh"

Today, plan to get from Kabashish Inn at Himayathnagar. I see a lot of crowd there every day. So i assume their haleem is good.

Is "Sankati" a variety of Raagi Mudde or it's an alternate name for raagi mudde's itself?
I heard people order and relish that dish at "rayalseema ruchilu" along with nati kodi curry/gongura chicken/mutton. It's not in the form of ball but it comes in semi-solid form served in a bowl. . .I never acquired the taste for raagi mudde. BTW, Raagi Mudde is not staple food all across karnataka, it's staple food in some parts of southern karnataka (Mandya, Mysore etc)

Ragi Sangati(Telugu) = Ragi Mudde (Kannada)!

I have been a regular customer at Dwaraka in Lakdikapul when I used to live in Anand Nagar Colony and they don't serve Ragi Mudde/Sangati!
Apart from Rayalaseema Ruchilu, Malgudi serves good ragi sangati. (had once at the Lumbini Mall)


BTW, Ani, at what time did you go to Shadab yesterday? I was also there around 11:30 PM!

Since Nikhil bhai has been praising the Deccan Paradise Haleem for a long time now, why not try it out this week?

You should be on a look out for the Team-BHP stickers near Shadab as Ravvs' car was parked just ahead of Shadab last night!

Had a word with Avinash the last Sunday, when we met for Kirkiri's wedding. As the End of Haleem Season is fast approaching and Id being around the corner, it's high time that we have a Proper Haleem Meet at Old City. Nothing beats the charm of Ramzan at Old City.

I've taken the liberty of adding a couple of names based on our discussions and prior posts in the thread.

I wasn't talking of this outlet but there's another swanky new thing which is started by (if I'm not mistaken) a bunch of fellow alums. I could be wrong.

The Mumbaiya naturals you are talking about is really really nice. Certain flavours (especially the dry fruits ones - I'm a sucker for dry fruits anyway any day) are just fantastic.

@SILVERWOOD this is near Ratnadeep super market on the road which goes from Banjara Hills Road #3 to Srinagar Colony (junction after you cross Southern Spice and before the dargah).

DBC is my personal mostest favourite but yeah I like trilogy, almond-vanilla, French apple cake and a couple of other sundaes. And those thick and creamy ice cream shakes! What heart-burn, I say! Especially from the ones laced with honey. Even black coffee can't give that much heart-burn, I'm sure.
