Ragi Idiyappam-Step By Step Pics

     Ragi Idiyappam /Ragi semiya/Ragi sevai is a healthy breakfast. Adding a decent amount of  ragi to our diets would do wonders for our health and nutrition. I try to include ragi in many forms like dosa,idiyappam etc.
     I do Poha upma,Lemon Semolinabath,Rava kichadi for breakfast .This recipe is with store bought ragi idiyappam . Its a tasty and simple dish for a weekday breakfast or for a simple dinner. Your breakfast or dinner will be ready in under 15 minutes.

  • To me Anil ragi sevai is the best. If you use other brands then soak time varies, see the package instructions before making.
  • If you feel the ragi is soggy steam it for more time.
  • Allow the ragi to be soaked for sometime that is the secret of softest idiyappam.

  1. nice, healthy sevai. U said it right, we have to include more amount of millets in our diet.

    On-going event: South Indian cooking.

  2. Somehow the popularity of raagi over here isn't that much, But strange that it was what I grew up eating. Mum makes all sort of dishes with it. I like the simple touch you added to the semiya and of course, I love anything spicy and with curry leaves.
