Sprouted Ragi and Mixed Vegetable Porridge

If you are bored of your regular breakfast, try this new recipe made using sprouted ragi and mixed vegetables.

Ragi is nutritious, rich in calcium, iron and protein. You can have this porridge with wheat bread or fruits and this dish is going to keep you fresh through out the day for sure. I have used a combination of vegetables to go with sprouted ragi. Here comes the healthy breakfast recipe for you:

How to make Sprouted Ragi

Wash ragi thoroughly and soak it in fresh water for 24 hours. The next day pack the ragi in a thin cotton cloth and place it on a dish. Keep something heavy or weighed on the cereal packed in cloth. Let it remain for 24 hours. The third day you can see the sprouts coming up in the seeds.

Sprouting makes the porridge easily digestible and improves the nutritional content.
