It’s definitely a high end product as 250 grams if ragi powder costs approx around 350 rupees. We can buy kilos of ragi in that price.

Commonly called ragi sere here in Karnataka, ragi is soaked in water overnight, sprouted, sundried and then roasted and powdered. The powder is then added to boiling water and a porridge is made mostly adding sugar or jaggery.

I can go through this process but my baby is starting off cereals so early so I wanted a safer product. With the pollution it’s almost impossible to sundry the sprouted ragi. Once my baby’s immunity builds I will surely work on making this at home.

Procedure: Just add powder to water at room temperature, then boil this mixture and stir for 5 mins, then it’s ready to serve. If the porridge gets thick add boiling water and stir again. You can add a pinch of sugar preferably crystalline sugar (they call it kal sakkare here or kalkandu in tamil nadu) or jaggery or salt.

Ragi is very healthy and good for the bones as it has calcium. Though babies like it, it’s better to go slow on ragi. And start off with this porridge when it’s quite sunny outside and not when it’s very cold, as ragi has cooling properties.
Availability can be an issue, you need to specifically order at medical stores. Tell them the company name and they will get it for you.

  1. Ragi is very nutritious. It not only provide nutrition to the body but also very fibrous in nature. Its high in calcium and very good for women’s especially as they tend to lose calcium over the period of time. I personally use ragi and would like to advise others to use ragi for their babies and themselves too.

      Hi Sushant where do you live? It is easily available in all medical stores in Bangalore. Its very easy to prepare at home.
      Just soak whole ragi in water for 12 hours, remove water and let it sprout for another 12 hours. Dry it in a sunny place and roast it on a pan.
      Now dry grind the ragi and sieve. Its easy to make and store.
