Am not a breakfast person, so obviously i skip it, but somehow after reading so many articles about the importance of taking breakfast now am trying to have atleast something for the sake of having breakfast. Just a coffee with a slice of bread is enough for me, sometimes i'll make oats porridge or ragi malt which will be very filling when compared to coffee and bread slice.Ragi malt can be prepared in a jiffy and this filling nutritious drink keeps your tummy filled until lunch. Ragi malt can be prepared in two ways, sweet and savory. My today's post is sweet ragi malt. Unless like Ragi koozh, this malt is prepared simply with ragi flour,milk and sugar or honey,yes just with simple ingredients your breakfast is ready to have.
Since finger millet/ragi/kezhvaragu is rich in calcium and antioxydants, i'll try to include them often in my diet. These grains are gluten free and helps a lot for easy digestion.If you want this ragi malt more nutritious,just add couple of grounded nuts in it. However you can make your ragi flour at home and mine is sprouted ragi flour which i prepared few days back at home. Its really easy to make this ragi flour at home, just whole ragi grains are needed to make your own ragi flour.If you want to kick start your day with a filling breakfast, you must try this nutritious ragi malt.
