Ragi Malt(Sweet) Recipe | Dates Ragi Malt | Sweet Ragi Porridge Recipe | Ragi Malt With Dates & Nuts

Ragi Malt Recipe
Today's recipe is a healthy and equally delicious sweet porridge prepared using Ragi flour, Palm Jaggery, Dates & Nuts. I cook Ragi/Finger Millet once or twice in a week and mostly a savory dish like Ragi Adai or Ragi Idli for dinner or breakfast. Rarely make Ragi Puttu for kids and this time instead of Puttu I made Sweet Porridge/Ragi Malt. Instead of plain version with milk and sugar I made it extra healthy using dates puree and Palm Jaggery. Palm Jaggery and dates are natural sweetener and the porridge turned out super delicious and also the color of the porridge was so dark like chocolate malt. My kids loved it a lot.
Ragi/Finger Millet porridge are super healthy and delicious recipes for growing kids, so try to include at least once in a week in their diet. If you don't have dates in hand you can skip dates and make it as a plain ragi malt. Here I used store bought Organic Ragi Flour and Organic Palm Jaggery, for vegan option use Coconut milk or Almond milk. I have tried with coconut milk too. Theres not much difference in the taste of ragi malt using dairy milk and coconut milk. Cardamom powder enhances the taste and flavor but it is optional.
