There is another version which is a spicy version, will share that soon. I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..

Water - 2 cups
Previously Boiled Milk - 1.5 cup
Sugar / Palm Sugar / Jaggery - as needed
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai - 1/2 tsp
Almonds / Cashews / Pista - as needed


If you are using jaggery or palm sugar. Take it in a sauce pan, add in some water and heat so it is melted. Now strain this and set aside. If you are using sugar, dont need to do this.

Now take ragi flour in a sauce pan, add water slowly and keep mixing so no lumps are formed in ragi.

Once it is mixed, add milk and mix well.

Now put this on heat and keep mixing. Cook this for 5 to 7 mins till the malt is thick and cooked.

Now take it off heat and add in sugar or the strained palm sugar syrup. Add in cardamom powder and chopped nuts as well.
