Using blender/mixer, grind strawberries to thick pulp without adding any water. Keep the strawberry puree aside, while we proceed to prepare the ragi mixture for the energy balls.
In a mixing bowl, add finger millet (ragi) flour. Add salt, sprinkle little water at a time and make a crumble out of the ragi flour. Add a little water at a time to moisten to the flour slowly. Be patient in doing this procedure. You know its of the right consistency, when you hold the flour tightly in the palm of your hands it will hold itself and when you release it will break apart.
The next step is to steam the ragi flour mixture. Place the ragi flour mixture in a steamer or Idli pot or a Puttu maker for about 10 minutes on high heat.
Once the ragi mixture is steamed, transfer it to a bowl. Add the grated coconut and the strawberry pulp. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
