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 ???? 😉
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. 🙂
The day began with Finger Millet for us. 🙂 🙂 Called Kezhwaragu ( கேழ்வரகு) here, its one good source of Iron and Calcium.
கேழ்வரகு வெல்ல அடை (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.
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.
Mix well to make it look like this.
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. 🙂 😛
Now, cook on the tawa on low heat and dont blacken it too much…Use ghee on both sides while cooking….
Now, the yummy Ragi Vella Adai is ready to gobble…of course, we finished eating all of them. 😛 😛 😛 Have them plain…its damn good. Or u can have it with coriander / pudina chutney or pickle. Enjoy it…however u want. 🙂
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…..so what are u waiting for ???? Come on, do it, eat it and be fit. 🙂 😛 😛
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. 🙂 And of course, milagai podi is a damn good combo too !!! 🙂 😛
