Ragi Kanji/Ragi Malt/Kelvaragu Kanji

Ragi kanji is a very healthy way to start your day. This is a perfect porridge even for small babies. I used to give this to my girl when she was 6 months, she was lactose intolerant. So I used to substitute milk with yogurt (thayir) and no sugar, just salt. When you start for your babies, give small quantities and gradually increase the amount. Later on when they turn older like 12 months or above you can start with the sathu maavu kanji available in shops or make it at home as well.

I grew up on ragi kanji when I was a kid, now my kids are having it. Even now me and my husband have it at least two or three times a week for breakfast.
