Ragi/Finger Miller & Coconut Milk Halwa





Yum

Yay.... Its My 175th Recipe here and feel like its time for some healthy celebration...


Ragi is also known as Finger millet... this is a great source of calcium and fiber, No other cereal comes close to ragi when it comes to calcium content...

This recipe was made by my sister, watched by my mom and passed on to me a few months back, i was very much interested in the recipe as the ingredients were very healthy but didn't get time to make it, finally yesterday night i soaked the ragi and went to sleep. Today the first thing i did was making this in the morning, and i am very happy about the outcome and the taste was simply awesome for the simplicity of this recipe.

You wont believe that even my sweet little picky eater asked me for a seconds...

Lets get to the recipe...
