I have mentioned in several posts that I usually mask healthy stuffs into the seemingly normal dishes so that the kids will eat it without a fuss! Well,this Ragi Buttermilk Recipe is one such!My lil one hates Ragi based dishes as they look unappealing and so I am forced to mask Ragi / Finger millet into other dishes.

He was very happy with the Eggless Ragi Cookies, Eggless Ragi Cupcakes! I tricked him into eating it saying it is chocolate. The kiddo was super happy and that made me happy as well.

I do feel a little guilty for deceiving him but since it is something that is good for him, the level of guilt comes down.


So, as I was saying, I mask Ragi in various dishes and the kiddo eats it happily. One such experiment lead to this Ragi Buttermilk Recipe!

The kids love curd and buttermilk and hence I wanted to add to its nutrition quotient. With the millets theme going on this month and the summer heat getting unbearable,I thought this would be the ideal time to try out this drink.

Trust me, no one can ever find out the Ragi flavor in this buttermilk drink. It is totally masked! You don’t have to take my word for it.Try it out and you will surely agree.
