Ragi (Finger Millet) + Oats + Water = Ragi Oats Porridge
Ragi Oats Porridge is sugar free, nutritious, kid friendly, baby food and people from all ages can eat them for healthy breakfast. I am glad this dish was introduced to me by my mother. She used to make them for me to take care of iron suppl. Also if you have wounds Or stitches post operation Or pregnancy ragi can be very beneficial in healing wounds.
Ragi known as nachni is red in color also known as finger millet. Ragi is rich in iron, calcium and oats are great for health too. So when you combine both it’s a great healthy fusion. I have them almost every alternate day.
Ragi Oats Porridge is easy peasy to make and can be eaten any time during hunger pangs. I love using organic jaggery powder. You could use brown sugar, low cal sugar etc to make this porridge.
Hmmm that’s it for today let’s move to the recipe quickly!
Take a vessel combine all the ingredients except nuts. Place on low heat. I used water you could use milk. Keep stirring in between so that no lumps are formed.
The mixture will start thickening. If it becomes too dry add little water if required. Add crushed nuts and cook for 2 mins more.
Switch off the gas serve Ragi Oats Porridge hot.
Tips for Ragi Oats Porridge:
