Healthy breakfast

I always crib about Monday Morning blues….but today was different. Dont know why or what gave me the feeling of goodness !!!! Is it because the girls have holidays and there is no need to pack lunch ???? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Either way, I was in a good mood when I started the day. So, here’s some sweet breakfast, which made it all the more a wonderful day to begin. ๐Ÿ™‚

The day began with Finger Millet for us. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ย Called Kezhwaragu ( เฎ•เฏ‡เฎดเฏเฎตเฎฐเฎ•เฏ)ย here, its one good source of Iron and Calcium.

เฎ•เฏ‡เฎดเฏเฎตเฎฐเฎ•เฏ เฎตเฏ†เฎฒเฏเฎฒย เฎ…เฎŸเฏˆ (Ragi Jaggery Pancake)

Measure 3 cups of water and bring it to boil, in a wide pan. Now add to it, 2 cups of grated jaggery. Let the jaggery melt. Switch off the heat and filter the jaggery water to remove impurities. Now keep the filtered jaggery water again on heat and bring it to a boil.

Boil Jaggery in Water

Add cardamom powder to it. When its just begins to boil, add 1.5 cups of Ragi flour and 0.5 cups of Wheat flour to it.

Ragi flour + Wheat Flour

Mix well to make it look like this.

Ragi + Wheat flour mixed in Jaggery

Now, make them into small balls and flatten it on a greased plastic sheet. Using ghee is the best option….just use a little, for the taste. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›

Now, cook on the tawa on low heat and dont blacken it too much…Use ghee on both sides while cooking….

Cook it on a tava on low heat. Apply little ghee on both sides.

Now, the yummy Ragi Vella Adai is ready to gobble…of course, we finished eating all of them. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ย Have them plain…its damn good. Or u can have it with coriander / pudina chutney or pickle. Enjoy it…however u want. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yummy, healthy breakfast.

Its a fav at home and we three girls, hog on this very often. I actually refrigerate the extra dough and keep using it from time to time.

Its yummy, healthy, tasty, so good for health… what are u waiting for ???? Come on, do it, eat it and be fit. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›


Edited to add :

Spicy version of Kezhvaragu adai (as per CelestialRays’ request)

Take a cup of Ragi flour, add to it finely cut green chillies and finely cut onions. Add salt and a tablespoon of curd. Mix well. If required add a little water. Make into balls and flatten it and cook on tawa. Its super awesome with coriander chutney. ๐Ÿ™‚ And of course, milagai podi is a damn good combo too !!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›

      Its good to see u back….with a friendship story, that too…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Come on, dig in….btw did u find sago over there ????


  1. Why do you do this to me Uma! Here I am cursing the universe for bringing in the concept of Monday morning after getting up late, missing breakfast, managing to get to work barely on time and now I am starved but only want to eat this ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Not the friendly egg and Mayo sandwich that is available next door!

    Ps: does this ragi adai have a savoury/spicy version as well?


    1. Oh..oopsy…..sorry for this, on a starving day for you….but I had to share it with u all… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

      Yes, there is a spicy version too…will update it. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Healthy breakfast is such a dream. Most days its cornflakes or cuppa tea for us :(. This one sounds so lovely
    And thank you so much for the spicy version of it!! Would wanna try it at home asap.


    1. So, u are trying the spicier version huh ???? Go on…I am waiting for ur review. ๐Ÿ™‚

      U know, I hate cornflakes, mainly becos I cant drink plain milk…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And I cant eat plain bread and butter / jam….A sandwich is fine and not so fond of. So, I try to make diff things for breakfast….and this is one such recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. OOPSIE….oh, forgot all abt that fasting…. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here, we feast during Navrathri time… ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› With different varieties of sundals and sweets, its like feast for us. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Do it after your fasting, OK ???? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›


    1. Some rare recipes are coming out of the feast treasure box of mine…so hold on to it and do it quick and press the Like button, if u like the result. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›


  3. We make the spicier version. Same as our ragi rotti, only diff being we pat in directly on the tawa. Never made the sweet version. Wil ask the sweet tooth @ home whether he wants it ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. He is the sweet tooth ???? LOL !!! Then he’ll surely like it. ๐Ÿ™‚ My amma always makes this during Karthigai deepam. But since here at MIL’s place, there is no such thing, I do it whenever the sweet tooth demands it. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Made the spicy one for S, yday night….he fell in love with it. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›


    1. Sweet or spicy, do whichever one that suits the taste buds…come on Smithu, do this. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Even I am not for sweet things, but anything with jaggery is sure to make my day brighter. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›


  4. I don’t have Ragi at home, but I’m going to do something with the jaggery I have and make some pancakes with the atta flour … you just gave me an idea for dessert tonight ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you madam


  5. I can never ever have any kind of sweet thing for breakfast. One reason I hate waking up in a hotel here coz they serve all kinds of pancakes and waffles only *puke* psst psst I take along hot spicy chilli sauce to drown these pancakes :mrgreen:

    RAGI is my favourite. God I had stuffed so much of that thing into Samy’s body when he was a kid ๐Ÿ˜› I am definitely gonna make your sweet version for my evening snack and the spicy version for saturday breakfast.

    PS: Nu and me will definitely REPORT back to you Chef-in-Commander :mrgreen:


    1. U stuffed so much into that kid ???? LOL !!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      But this wont be so sweet, Saks….its just the right amount to enjoy…becos I cant eat so much sweet anytime….. ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course, I too hate pancakes, for their sweetness…I wish there is some spicier version. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

      I would very much appreciate it, my sweet Soldiers in Kitchen !!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I’ve been fed a lot of ragi poweder mixed with milk/water as a kid…but this is the first time I m hearing of a dish like this!!! Pls adopt me!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€


  7. I remember having something like this when I was younger but had forgotten all abt it. Thanks for the idea…one more variety to add to the brkfast list ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. Hey Nancy, its good to see u here….so howz u ???? ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs to the girls. ๐Ÿ™‚
