To begin with , add 1 cup of ragi into a bowl . Wash nicely in water. There will be lots of dust particles, stone in ragi. So it’s better to wash ragi nicely 2-3 times , by scrubbing it with your hand , discard the water.
After ragi is washed well , add 6-7 almonds , 2 cups water and soak it minimum for 2-3 hours .
Drain the water and transfer the soaked ragi into a mixer jar. Add 1/4 cup fresh coconut , 2-3 cardamom. Add 1 cup water .Grind it really smooth.
Filter the ground Ragi using a strainer. Extract the juice nicely
Transfer the leftover ragi paste collected in the sieve back to the mixer jar. Add a cup of water and blend smooth. Filter it again neatly like we did before
Like this , transfer the left over extract , add water grind smooth . Repeat the steps 2-3 times , till you try to extract almost all the juice from the ground ragi paste
After filtering ragi milk almost 3 times , this is the ragi extract that’s leftover at last. If you observe this is mainly ragi skin. Almost all the juice from the ground ragi paste has been extracted
Now Sugar less ragi milk is ready , add jaggery according to your preference and mix well. I have added here 1/2 cup jaggery
Dissolve jaggery nicely. Adjust the consistency of ragi milk if required by adding little water. You could alter the water quantity and jaggery quantity based on your preference as in how sweet you like or how thick you want
That’s it , super healthy and very nutritious ragi milk is ready .You could serve as such or keep in fridge and serve chilled . tastes more tasty and soothing
