Coconut Milk


Jaggery / Dates

Nuts ( optional)

Cardamom Powder (optional)

Ghee (clarified butter)


1If using Ragi flour, go to the next step, or If using whole Ragi, then first soak overnight, born with some water in the morning to make a smooth paste.

2Mix Ragi flour, jaggery / date purée, coconut milk and some water to make a thickish paste.

3Put in a pot on the stove and stir till it thickens.

4When it starts to leave sides, Take it off the stove and add some ghee. You can add some nuts and cardamom powder at this stage of you like.



*I make some extra and freeze in little boxes. Thaw a few hours before and heat on the cook top with some milk to make the required consistency.
