Once the pressure is off, check if rice looks soft. The rice should almost look mashed.
Check if the rice still has water, else add 1/2 cup water. Add the Ragi flour. cover with lid and allow it to simmer for 5 mins.
This takes about five minutes.
Ragi flour is added slowly so that no lumps are formed.
Take a big bowl that is wide enough to rotate. Wet the entire inner side of the vessel with water, throw away excess water. Transfer the hot ragi rice into the bowl, quickly move the vessel in a circular way so that the ragi rice naturally binds to form a ball.
