Ragi chocolate pudding

A very happy new year to all of you. Hope you all had a great party on the New year day!!! We had a cozy evening at home. My brother’s family joined us and we watched Guinness Record Fireworks display at Palm islands Live on TV. Evening’s are getting very cold here, so we thought it is good to be at home with the kids. 
It has become customary to begin a celebration with something sweet. But i was a bit hesitant to overload us with sugar. So, i made this Ragi Chocolate Pudding, simple, yet satisfying our taste-buds. Since it has chocolate, your lil ones too would love to taste it. 

Ingredients (makes 3 servings)
2 tsp ragi flour
1 tsp cocoa powder (I used hershey’s)
1.5 cups of milk
2 tsp  brown sugar (see notes)
Few roasted almonds/cashews for garnishing

  • Take 1 cup of milk in a saucepan and heat to boil.Take ragi flour and cocoa in a small bowl, add 1/4 cup of milk and make a smooth mixture. 
  • When the milk starts to boil, reduce the flame to simmer and slowly add the ragi-cocoa milk mix to it and whisk well to combine. Add the remaining milk and sugar to this. 
  • Cook this in a medium flame to about 10-12 minutes until the mixture thickens. 
  • Take it off the flame. Serve warm or pour into small cups. Refrigerate until serve.  
  • It is a perfect breakfast dish, but can also be served as a light dessert. If serving as dessert, garnish with roasted nuts and chocolate shavings.
  • If you don’t have brown sugar, you can use white sugar too or try using powdered jaggery.
  • In case if you feel you have added more milk than neccessary or pudding isn’t thickening, try adding a tsp of oats.
