As per Ayurveda, during season change, it is advised to eat light, clean food, and going Satvik is the best approach. While lentils and grains are barred from Satvik diet, there are many millets that can be made part of the menu.
Ragi, which is also called Nachni in other parts of the country, is a millet, making it among the permissible ingredients of the fasting season. Ragi has gained enough traction in the world of health too, for its high fibre and decent protein value. It is a good thing that the millet is so versatile as well. Don’t believe us? Have a look at these recipes we curated just for you and your fasting requirement.
1. Ragi Mudde
Dense finger millet balls made of Ragi, ghee, salt and water. It is advisable to use sendha namak instead of regular salt to make this popular breakfast item.
2. Ragi Peanut Ladoo
During fasting season, there is no cap on sugar or jaggery. Some people prefer using a pinch to maintain their energy levels. Speaking of which, these ladoos are nothing short of energy balls. They are wholesome, quick and easy to prepare. While Ragi serves as a perfect, subtle base, peanuts offer a nice crunch.
3. Ragi Banana Dosa
As we said, it is never a bad idea to add energy-boosting foods to your fasting meal plan. When you are making your dosa, add the goodness of both Ragi and bananas. These dosas are not savoury; instead, they have a mild, sweet and subtle flavour that is sure to liven up your morning.
4. Ragi Halwa
This easy, peasy halwa can turn your day around with its wholesomeness. Halwas are an intrinsic part of Knajak and Bhog offered to the deity, and this fasting season give the classic dish a twist with Ragi.
5. Ragi Idiyappam
Idiyappam are popular string hoppers from South India, often made with a rice batter, but since rice is out of bounds during fasting, how about recreating the same with Ragi. It is earthy, dense, and so delicious. Try it now.
