When you want to have a healthy yet easy breakfast, ragi suji upma is the answer. This is a healthier option than a upma made solely of semolina. Rava is partially refined and thus devoid of some nutrients.
Ragi or red millet flour, on the other hand, is so full of fibre and iron, thus making this a super-nutritious dish. So, although the colour of this upma is not so appealing, its nutrient quotient is, making it a must-try. Iron is a much needed nutrient to build your hemoglobin reserve. A serving of this healthy nachni upma fulfils 10% off your daily requirement of this nutrient.
When mixing after adding water, use a whisk to avoid any unnecessary lump formation. Make sure you serve ragi upma immediately or else it will turn lumpy.
