Inspired by her and her, I tried a different recipe of Ragi Malt. I used jaggery instead of sugar. This drink can be had as an alternative to coffee and tea and also for breakfast. It keeps you full and is nutritious too. This jaggery flavored nutritious ragi malt can be had either hot or cold.
Ragi/ Finger millet flour - 2 tablespoons
Milk - 1/2 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Jaggery (powdered)- 2 teaspoons
Cardamom powder - 1 pinch (optional)
To the ragi flour, add little cold water and mix to form a smooth paste without any lumps.
In a vessel, bring the milk and water to boil. Add the ragi paste slowly to the boiling milk. Keep stirring with a spoon in order to prevent lump formation.
Add the jaggery powder and cardamom powder. Cook on low flame for about two minutes. The mixture thickens. Remove fro heat and serve hot or cold!
Jaggery can also be replaced with sugar. It can also be prepared with milk alone instead of adding water to get a thick drink.
