Raagi/finger millet soup

     Raagi or finger millet is the best natural source of iron and hence good for building haemoglobin. I was also advised by the doctor to take raagi as it is a very rich and readily available source of iron. I used to take a porridge made of raagi,milk and sugar almost everyday and got quite bored of the taste. But then I now occasionally enjoy this quick soup with or without the vegetables. You can also just omit the vegetables, add yogurt to the cooked raagi soup for a different taste.

    This is so very healthy! One of my friend told me that Raagi is an authentic “Tamilar” food. I am beginning to experiment with Raagi too. When I do the Blogging Marathon(3rd batch), you will see a recipe with this as a star ingredient too.
