Raagi Milk is prepared in the following manner:-

For one teaspoon of Raagi Powder take a cup of milk. First boil the milk and simultaneously mix the powder with little warm milk in a cup and make it into a smooth paste. When the milk boils then lower the gasflame and add the paste and stir the mixture continously so as to avoid formation of lumps. Then allow the milk to boil for once and remove.

Raagi is a healthy food in minerals & vitamins. It is Cool(thanda) therefore in Winter much consumption is not advisable. To start with Raagi preparation begin with one spoon increase daily as the body has to adjust with the new food.

Raagi Milk is prepared in the following manner

For one teaspoon of Raagi Powder take a cup of milk. First boil the milk and simultaneously mix the powder with little warm milk in a cup and make it into a smooth paste. When the milk boils then lower the gasflame and add the paste and stir the mixture continously so as to avoid formation of lumps. Then allow the milk to boil for once and remove. The mixture when cooled will automatically get thicken. The same can be stored and then served to the kid. For flavour while boiling the milk elaichi powder, sugar and salt as per taste required is to be added. This is my great grandmothers recipe which I have been feeding my son since six months old till now. He is now 2 years old.

Farheen,

It is ok to feed ragimalt to a baby of 4+months. Get the ragi flour grided very very finely and using a small seive , seive the flour. Boil the malt well and you can add a bit of salt for taste.

Dear Farheen,

yes, it is very good for babies. However, I would recommend starting after 5 months andi making sure the ragi malt is almost completely liquid.

Hope this helps!

you can make ragi malt and feed 4 month old baby. It's very simple. rost ragi and make powder. Mix with formula or milk. add some suger if desired. You can add apple sauce or some gerber fruit which is better than suger and feed with spoon.Although the style of preparation varies from place to place, it is an undisputed fact that ragi is a very nutritious dish. My son's paedatrician recommended ragi halwa as the first semi solid for him. But the best mix for ragi feed, is ragi, wheat, rice, pulses and dals, all powdered well and sieved properly. Cook it with milk, see to it that ragi is cooked very well, other wise it can cause tummy upsets, add a spoon of ghee and a little salt/sugar. But do remember to feed him lukewarm water, since it helps in digestion.It is very simple and easy to make.

If you can get the ragi powdered. Take one cup of ragi powder and stir it in a cup of water.

Stir well all the skins will float to the top. Pour away the that part and you will be left with the goodness of the ragi flour.(the skins will be too hard for your little one to digest)

Add more water about one and a half cups and boil it well until thickened.

Add milk, pinch of salt (optional) and little sugar. (Keep the use of refined sugar/products to the minimum). You can make it thin enough to feed through a feeding bottle or thick enough to serve by spoon-fulls.
