For few days i was making ragi porridge using fresh ragi. Then i came across making homemade ragi powder recipe at home and immediately gave it a shot. And many of you asked for that recipe, so here it is.
Ragi is very healthy for babies, it is filling and help your baby gain weight in a healthy way. Few things you have to remember before making this.
1)The consistency of the porridge which you make totally depends on you. You can make it too runnier and pour it bottles and feed your baby or make it little thicker and feed your baby using a spoon.
2) I use panakarkandu or karupatti as sweetner. This is how i do. I take a small piece of karupatti or a piece of panakarkandu in a saucepan, add some water in it and heat it up till it is melted. Then i strain that and add ragi powder in it, strain again and cook them together.
Karupatti strengthens your baby bones. Panakarkandu helps prevending cold for your babies. You can even mix up a small piece of both.
3)If you feed a good bowl of this for your baby. Your baby will sleep peacefully for a good 2 to 3 hours. It is that filling.
4)Cook ragi properly. If you didn't cook it properly, it may cause constipation.
5)Many people say ragi may cause constipation. But i am feeding the to my baby for 3 weeks now. And she is passing stool daily.

How to sterilize baby feeding bowls:
Start by sterilizing the bowls and spoons which you are going to feed your baby. Take the bowl and spoon in a large saucepan, cover it with water and bring them to a boil. Boil it rapidly for 5 mins. Now you can turn the heat off and leave them stay in the hot water till use.
How to make Ragi Porridge using Homemade Powder:
FIRST CHECK THE RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE RAGI POWDER
Take a clean saucepan, add in 2 tblspn of karupatti. Now pour in 3/4 cup of clean water. Heat this up and cook untill the karupatti is melted.
Now take a clean bowl and a fine mesh strainer. Sieve the liquid through this.
Now add a tblspn of homemade ragi powder in the liquid and mix well so no lumps are formed.
I washed the saucepan and sieve well in the meantime. Now pour this liquid again through the sieve in the saucepan.
Heat this on a low flame stiring continously. Cook this for around 4 to 5 mins till the ragi is cooked and thicken.
Take it off the heat, allow it to cool down and transfer it to feeding bowl or feeding bottle and feed your baby.
