Ragi Ambali :
A savory finger millet flour drink which can be consumed at mid-morning / tea-time snack times or as breakfast. Ragi is a frequently used millet in south Indian homes with many nutrients – protein, calcium, potassium, iron, fiber to name a few. This drink makes a satisfying warm healthy drinkable snack. It hardly takes 5-7 minutes to get ready. I found this recipe while researching, on Food and Remedy here.
I was sipping this, this morning, whilst checking my email etc. I was feeling grateful for the healthy warmth it provided.
There are many things in the world which cannot be fixed…. But to keep us going, at the least, to keep the hunger stress away, the humble ambali will suffice.
Do try it. I am sure you will not be disappointed.
