Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Agree. But it’s also the hardest meal to decide on. For lunch, I’ve got half the morning to decide on what I’m going to make. But when you wake up and need to decide between porridge, toast or cereal, sometimes the routine can be a bit boring. If I were to dig deep down into my golden book of healthy breakfast recipes, one ingredient that would stand out is finger millet.

Finger Millet? Huh? This not so commonly used grain is used as a cereal and is very easily available in India. They look like tiny brown mustard seeds that are sold as a flour. You can also get the roasted variety, which tastes simply super!

Finger millet, also known as Ragi in India is not only healthy but safe to give babies as little as 6 months. That’s how amazing this super superfood is! It comes as a powder that you mix with water and boil. And if you get hold of the roasted variety I mentioned earlier, it tastes a lot like chocolate when sweetened with some coconut sugar. Can you imagine eating a warm bowl, full of smooth chocolate, that’s not really chocolate ?!

Top them up with your favorite dried fruit and nut! Now that’s was I call a fully charged Breakfast! And did you notice something else in this recipe? No CARB! Winner!

Ingredients
  • 1/2cup Ragi FlourFinger millet powder
  • 2tbsp coconut sugaror raw honey
  • 4cups water
  • 1tsp cinnamon powder
  • 5 dates fruit
  • 1tbsp almonds
  • 1/2cup coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Dissolve the finger millet powder in the 4 cups of water.
  2. Place this ragi mix in a pan and turn on the heat. Make sure its on low setting the entire time you cook.
  3. Keep stirring right from the start, It only takes 7-8 minutes before its done, so make sure you are constantly stirring other it can get a bit lumpy
  4. Once it gets creamy and smooth turn off the flame and serve mixing in some coconut milk and coconut sugar, topped with the fruits and nuts.
Recipe Notes

The only tricky part is mixing it well for the 7 minutes so it doesn't get lumpy. And once done its a treat!

If you make this at night, it will stay safe overnight in the fridge for breakfast in the morning.

You can substitute coconut milk for almond or soy to suit your preference. But I find coconut milk works best. And as for the sweetness, we use coconut sugar/ raw honey. But if you are looking for a Keto option then Stevia works well.

I hope you love this super exotic recipe. Let me know what you think of the taste in the comments section below.
