Ragi/kurakkan porridge -(rye or finger millet)


This is a breakfast categorised dish.It could be made with a mixture of other healthy flours too.Even though it is a simple dish some find it difficult to make without lumps.For those who don’t like this especially kids will love if it is made like this,chilled in the refrigerator and served like a dessert.As ragi /kurakkan in short is considered very good for diabetic patients,and also a good blood purifier,I thought I’d share this with you all.
(Serves2)
4 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup shredded jaggery or 2-3 tblsp.sugar.
2 -3 cups water
Pinch of elaichi/cardamon powder
Nuts.

1/2 cup milk /coconut milk

A pinch of salt.
In a separate bowl mix the flour with 1/4 cup water(free from lumps and set aside.)
In another pan heat the water with salt.when it starts to boil remove from fire and slowly mix in the flour.Keep on medium fire again .Add the sugar/jaggery and keep stirring till you see big bubbles popping up.Add milk,stir for a minute Add elaichi powder.Remove from fire.This will quickly thicken like custard.If you want to serve as a dessert,pour into individual cups,top with nuts and serve chilled.
Choice of nuts:walnuts, almonds raisins(black).watermelon,or flax seeds).
