Ragi Kanji/Finger Millet Porridge

Ragi is one of the most nutritious food that you can give your baby. This was the first solid food Sammy had I think when she was around 5 months. I din’t add any sweetener like jaggery or sugar as she has got used to the natural flavor of the porridge. I just used to cook the porridge and add some breastmilk to thin the consistency of the porridge. Eventually as her appetite built up, I started adding mashed banana/peanut butter/ steamed apple to the porridge to give it a flavor. Here’s how I make it.


  • Ragi kanji powder- 2 tsp
  • Baby water- 1/2 cup
Mix 2 tsp of ragi kanji/porridge powder with 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan and mix well. Make sure there are no lumps. Place the pan on medium-low heat and keep stirring until it turns glossy. Might take around 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and add breastmilk or fruits if needed. Add breatmilk ONLY after removing the porridge from gas.
