Ragi Malt.. Drinking or eating Ragi is very good for the health and Ragi also know as finger millet is a rich source of calcium, protein, fiber, iron and other minerals. I really want to bring back these old and forgotten recipe to our modern life style.. This recipe looks very simple but very very healthy, this porridge is still daily drink in many houses of Karnataka.. Ragi can be used in many ways, you can even make Ragi balls, Roti's, Dosas, Idlis etc...
During Ramzan my mom use to cook this in a bulk and make all of us to drink everyday, sometime I use to just drink this porridge and keep the fast, though I don't like it.. But slowly I started liking this porridge and I cook this atleast once in a month.. I know I know it is not sufficient but still in my opinion having something is better than having nothing... Here come's the healthiest porridge recipe which you can add in you everyday diet...
1cup Ragi flour (finger millet)
2 1/2cup water
1 medium onion, 1 green chilli (finely chopped)
Handful of chopped coriander
Salt to taste.
In mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup water and ragi flour, mix it nicely and set it aside.
In a deep pan, add rest of the water and salt, bring it to a bowl.
Then slowly add the ragi flour mixture and keep stirring to avoid any lumps and sticking to the bottom of the pan. cook till the raw smell goes for about 4 to 5 minutes..(keep stirring).
Allow the ragi mixture to cool down a bit, then add yoghurt, onion, green chili and coriander, mix them nicely and Serve warm or cold..
