Ragi Porridge is a delicious porridge made from finger millets. Finger Millets Porridge is also called Teezan and is a healthy breakfast option.

Teezan

Nachani is a rich in iron and calcium and is an important part of the diet of a lactating mother and is just as important for toddlers.  Nourishing and filling  Teezan or Tizann can be eaten warm or chilled, as a breakfast or a snack.

Let me tell you quite frankly Ragi or Nachani was not a regular part of my diet. It is only now after my second child was born that I started consuming Ragi as Satv and Tizaan on a regular basis. Then again after my hysterectomy, I made it a part of my diet frankly because it is easy to make now it is a comfort food.

In Karnataka, we make Ragi Mudde, Ragi rotti but it is now I see dosas, idlis, pancakes, cookies, cakes. So I can see ways and means that I can sneak it in my family’s diet (read Husband’s diet) as he is now a confirmed diabetic. Stick with me and you will see a variety coming up but till ten enjoy Satv and cupcakes.

Finger Millet Porridge is traditionally made by blending the soaked nachne and coconut milk in Goa.  You can do it soak the ragi overnight then drain and grind it together with fresh coconut. Starin and then follow the method below or you can take a shortcut and make it with the ragi flour available in the market. You can use palm jaggery but since I never keep it in stock I used plain jaggery.

Either way, enjoy a tasty breakfast I made this as I ran out of dosa batter and I needed my breakfast fast.
