Ragi Koozh / Finger Millet Porridge / Ragi Porridge using Jaggery

This is one of the favourite dishes of my son; try out this calcium rich porridge using Ragi flour.


Ragi flour - ½ cup

Milk - 1 to 1 ½ cups
Water - 2  cups
Cardamon powder - ½ tsp
Salt - a pinch
Jaggery - 1 to 2 tbsp (adjust according to taste)

For Topping:

Ghee , Grated coconut or nuts.


Mix jaggery and little water in a pan. Boil till the jaggery melts and filter to remove impurities if any. 

(Instead of the above, you may also powder the jaggery and add directly to ragi milk mixture)

Mix ragi flour, water, milk, cardamom powder, Jaggery water / powder and salt in a pan without any lumps.

Heat the mixture and allow to boil; stirring continuously until the mixture thickens. 

Reduce the flame; cook for some more time till the jaggery melts (if you are adding directly) and mixture thickens. Remove from flame.

Add topping as you like. Your healthy, energy rich porridge is ready to serve.


You can the adjust milk and water quantity according to the desired consistency.

I prefer to add ghee for extra energy and taste!
