furthermore, some important tips and suggestions while preparing the ragi malt recipe or ragi porridge recipe. firstly, i have mixed water and ragi powder before cooking it in the hot water. this helps to remove any lumps and can easily mix with hot water to form a smooth paste. secondly, once the ragi mixture is mixed to hot water, it has to be stirred continuously until it forms a thick mixture. add jaggery and milk only after it starts thickening. note that jaggery is added just as a taste enhancer and is not mandatory. it should be skipped if the malt is served for diabetic patients. finally, the malt thickens quickly and has to be served immediately. if you are serving it later, make sure to add milk to reduce the thickness.
