Ragi Semiya Upma/Ragi Vermicilli Upma

Hello Friends,

I am back after my vacation, we had great time back in Chennai. I hope you all had great Christmas and wonderful New Year celebrations. I was really missing you all a lot, thank you all friends, readers, subscribers and visitors for your continuous support and encouragement. I am blogging after about a month, so I thought of sharing with you all something very healthy, quick and yummy – Ragi Semiya Upma. Before going into the recipe I want to share a few things about Ragi.

Ragi/finger millet is a rich source of Calcium, Iron, Protein, Fiber and other minerals. The rich source of fiber in Ragi helps to lower cholesterol level and is very easy to digest. Ragi cools down our body temperature in hot days and helps in weight control as well. The rich natural source of calcium in Ragi helps in strengthening the bone in growing children, older people and keeps everyone healthy. Check out my other Ragi dishes like Ragi Koozh, Ragi Kanji, RagiVadai, Ragi ladoo, Ragi Dosai, Ragi Puttu, Ragi Adai in the respective links.

Kezhvaragu Koozh/Ragi Koozh/Finger Millet Porridge

Kezhvaragu Koozh is a traditional Tamil Nadu dish which is an excellent cooler and nutritious one pot meal. This koozh is especially prepared in the month of “Aadi” for Amman and distributed to everybody in all the Amman temples and houses. In my mother’s house we prepare rice kanji for Amman, but in my in-laws it has been a tradition to prepare koozh for Amman. My MIL prepares koozh, mochai kottai kara kuzhambu, drumsticks leaves poriyal, Pidi kozhukkatai  and offer it to Amman in the month of “Aadi” and we all do special prayers and distribute it to everybody. Though I was not used to koozh, but after my marriage I have fallen in love with this healthy koozh. So this is my MIL’ s special Amman Koozh...

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.

Kelvaragu/Ragi Ladoo

Now that my kids have no school and are at home, they wanted some thing sweet. So I was thinking something healthy as well delicious. That is when I wanted to make ragi ladoo.  I came across my friend Preethi’s blog. I found her ragi ladoo very interesting, she had used almond milk powder. I skipped that part and  added cardamom powder. The ladoos came out fabulous, my kids loved it. Thanks a lot Preethi. So I thought I will share it with you all.
