Mudde is a compact ball of dough made from finger millet.
2 1/2 cups ragi (finger millet) flour
5 cups water
Boil the water and add a little of the flour to make a paste, then add the rest of the flour.
Stir once with the handle of a wooden spoon and leave it in the pot.
Keep on a low fire for about 10 minutes until it smells cooked.
Stir until the mixture turns dark reddish-brown. Once it begins to leave the sides of the pot, remove the pot from the fire and stir vigorously for 5-10 minutes--it`s hard work, but the longer you keep at it, the lighter it will be.
Pull the dough out and form into balls of about fist size.
Makes about 6 balls.
