hi.. u dont have to keep it for this long period. i hv made it. soak ragi for overnight approc 4 to 5 hrs. after that discard that water nd blend in the mixer with little water. and after blending put that in one bowl nd kept aside untouched for 2 to 3 hrs. all the powder will settle at the bottom of the bowl nd water will come up. make sure u discard that water. nd keep the powder in airtight container in refrigerator..


Kudos to you for making the effort!

hi priyanka this happened to me also once - i'm afraid u will need to discard it. pls follow manvi's suggestions and always store in the fridge. Aditi Manja #tagfwd

hi priyanka, discard it. Little Moppet Foods is very good. you can try that. you could also wash, sun dry and powder it and store in air tight container. when you need to use it, mix in water till no lumps, then strain it to remove any husks. if you want to sprout it then wash it 2-3 times and soak in water in the morning. then discard the water and tie it in a clean piece of cloth at night and keep it undisturbed for 12 hours. spread it out on a flat thali or plate and sun dry. then dry roast and powder in mixer-grinder and store in an air tight container.
