  • You can also add water and squeeze while filtering. Keep it aside for an hour. The thicker part of the juice sediments at the bottom. Pour out the watery portion remaining in the top of the vessel.

  • When the ragi milk gets cooked it becomes thicker and forms into paste consistency. Keep stirring in medium flame.
  • When the total milk gets cooked and becomes a paste add the sugar into the pan. When the sugar dissolves the lumps form. Don't bother.

  • Keep stirring. When the sugar is fully absorbed by the ragi and the stuff thickens keep adding ghee in small lots then and there and keep stirring. Add a pinch of food colour and mix well.
