  • Cook it for 3-4 minutes on low flame.
  • Finally, add milk and mix well.
  • Garnish generously with dry fruits and some ghee.

1.I have added sugar but it can be replaced with jaggery too as jaggery is a high source of iron and makes the dessert/drink delicious.
2.Also curd can be added and mixed in place of milk.
3.Never ever add the ragi flour directly into the boiling water as adding the flour directly makes the ragi malt full of lumps.
4.Adding ghee is optional but tastes delicious.
