Ragi ball.
A ball of cooked ragi flour. Almost black to dark brown in color, cricket ball to shot-put in size, it has the consistency of a hard cold sticky banana muffin.
It is mainly a South Karnataka staple. People in bordering districts in Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh do eat it too.

In villages some farmers often eat the same ragi 'mudde' for all the three meals of the day.
By itself, it is not very tasty, but the sambar, spinach soup, curry, or the non-vez gravy preparation that goes with it make for the real taste. It is ideal for those who do a lot of manual labor in the fields.

It is often recommended by physicians as part of the diet for diabetics due to its lower rate of metabolism.

Usage

Devegowda made 'mudde' famous in Delhi and Davos.

Lalu Prasad Yadav accused Devegowda of not taking up any mudde (mudde=issues, Hindi) of importance to the nation, but of only being busy with taking mudde (ragi balls) up on his dining table.
