Ragi Porridge, a very energising, tasteful breakfast porridge which came to my rescue. Yes! I was unwell , suffering with general fever since 4-5 days. And, I wasn’t willing to take any solids, with that bitter tongue. If you know, what I mean…!!

Actually, I prefer having this authentic family soup, Instant Soup / Instant Chaaru (No Powder).But it can’t be had for breakfast, so I wanted to make something soothing yet healthy hot breakfast food. This simple 4 ingredient hot porridge came to mind, which I made just within few minutes. And my sick feeling taste buds revived with its natural taste & I felt my energy has boosted back with the high iron, fibre, protein content. 🙂
