1-2 servings


  • 1/2 cup ragi (finger millet)
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  1. Wash the ragi well until the water runs clear; then soak it in 1/2 cup water for at least 6-8 hours or overnight.
  2. Grind the soaked ragi along with its water until it is finely ground. Strain out the milk through a muslin cloth.
  3. Transfer the ragi pulp to the grinder and repeat the process with 1/2 cup water for a second time. Then repeat the process for a third time.
  4. You can serve this milk cold or hot. If you wish to have it hot, transfer it to a steel glass. Heat water in a pot until it comes to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat, place the milk glass in the pot and cover it with a lid. Let it warm up for about 2 minutes. Remove and serve.
