My name is Lakshmi, and I am a homemaker. I love cooking and experimenting with different recipes, especially those from my native India.
Simili urundai is a nutrient-dense village-style snack that is made from ragi, peanuts, sesame, and jaggery. It's known for being very healthy; it is said to be especially good for nursing mothers because it is believed to promote milk production. My mom used to tell me that this was one of her favorite snacks when she was a child.

- 250 grams ragi flour
- 2 tablespoons peanuts, roasted
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, roasted
- 100 grams jagerry
- 2 tablespoons ghee
- Salt, to taste
- In a bowl, add salt and hot water little by little to the flour to make a soft ragi dough. The dough should not stick to the hands.
- Dry-roast the peanuts and sesame separately over medium heat till you get a nice aroma.
- Heat a tawa (pan). Take a ball of ragi dough and make it into a roti by flattening it with your fingers. Apply ghee around the roti. Make sure that the roti is well cooked on both sides.
- Once cooked, remove the roti from the tawa and make rotis from the remaining dough. Allow them to cool and then break them into pieces.
- In a mixer jar, add peanuts, sesame seeds, jaggery, and roti pieces one by one and blend for 2 to 3 seconds.
- Grease a hand with ghee, make balls, and serve.
