Ragi malt

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel
Ragi malt is a healthy drink prepared with ragi / finger millet, almonds, cashew nuts and saffron. Usually ragi malt is prepared with sprouted ragi / finger millet where ragi is sprouted and sun dried for few hours. Then dry roast them in a pan for few minutes, just to remove the excess moisture. Blend them in a mixer grinder / blender to a fine powder. You can store this powder in an air tight container in refrigerator for future use. Since i had freshly ground ragi flour from India, i used it for making malt. It is a healthy drink for all age groups.
