This is a simple exchange from the traditional oatmeal recipes you might have been bored of, or maybe you just want a change? Millet called ragi in India is rich in calcium, aids weightloss, rich in fibre, regulated blood sugar and treats anemia, is relaxant, good babyfood and boosts lactation in mothers

  • Raw honey, or sweetener of your choice
  • Nuts and dried fruit for garnish


  • STEP 1
    Dry toast the millet flour in a nonstick pan for a few minutes and then transfer it to a bowl. This methos gives it the rich flavour.

  • STEP 3
    Pour your mixture in the pan and keep stirring with a wooden spoon, until it thickens. It might take a few minutes.
