Ragi / finger millet is rich in calcium. My mom used to make porridge using other pulses, I add ragi to my multi-grain atta to make my atta calcium rich. When my kids were toddlers I used to give ragi porridge. I tried this rag idly and it turned out so well, even my kids like this.
Ragi/ finger millet - 2 cup
Boiled Kuthiraivalli rice / Barnyard millet - 2 cup
Urad dhall - 1 cup
Fenugreek seeds / Methi - 1 tbsp
Soak Ragi/ finger millet and barnyard millet and urad dhal and fenugreek seperately for 8 hours.
Grind it and ferment for 6 to 8 hours.
Grease the idly mold and make idlies.
Serve with your favorite chutney or sambhar.
I served this idly with Moongdhal Sambhar,
You can substitute rice instead of millet or you can use any millet.
If your kids doen;t like the color you can make kothu idly using ragi idly.
