  • Water - 1/4 cup + 1/4 cup
  • Cows milk - 1 cup don't add for babies under one year



  • Sterilize the bowls and spoons used for feeding your baby in a vessel with hot water for five minutes and keep it immersed in the same vessel until use.
  • Boil cows milk in a saucepan and keep it ready.


  • Take 2 tbsp of ragi flour in a saucepan. Add 1/4 cup of water to the powdered jaggery and boil in a separate vessel until it melts completely.
  • Then filter out the jaggery water using a strainer in the sauce pan</g> with ragi flour added. Add 1/4 cup of water to the sauce pan</g> and mix everything slowly with a whisk. Make sure that there are no lumps formed.
  • Cook the ragi flour mix in medium flame until the porridge turns into dark brown in color and shiny. Stir it continuously while cooking otherwise porridge may stick to the vessel. Add a cup of milk now to the cooked ragi. (Skip adding milk if you are preparing this porridge for a baby under one year ).
