Ragi kara boondi recipe, Finger millet kara boondi

Ragi Kara boondi/ Finger Millet kara boondi is a spicy, crunchy and yummy deep fried  snack made during festivals like Diwali or even served as tea time snack. This kara boondi is prepared with ragi flour/ finger millet flour, besan/ gram flour acting as key ingredient and adding chilli powder, peanuts, cashews and curry leaves for enhanced taste. I usually make kara boondi at home as they are much tastier, fresh and healthier than store bought ones, but this time wished to make it with little twist and I must say it was such a wise decision as it tasted super yum and perfect.
