Sweet Ragi Paniyaram (with Jaggery) | கேழ்வரகு வெல்ல பணியாரம்

Sweet Ragi Paniyaram, Ragi Jaggery Paniyaram

Today I am here with Sweet Ragi Kuzhi Paniyaram. This is an instant paniyaram made with Ragi flour and jaggery. Ragi is called as Finger millet in English, Kezhvaragu (கேழ்வரகு) in tamil and Nachni in Hindi. Ragi is rich in calcium, iron, has high fibre content. It is also a great baby food. I try to use it in as many dishes as possible. For sweetness I have used Jaggery, which is a healthier substitute for sugar. It is rich in iron, and it is loaded with anti-oxidants and minerals.  This is easy to make, healthy and tastes delicious. I made this paniyaram for my kids for breakfast and they loved it. If you want to feed something healthy and also the one kids will love, then you can give this paniyaram a try.

Notes :

  • While cooking paniyaram, heat should be in medium- low. If it is high, the paniyaram will burn outside while it is still uncooked on the inside.
  • You can also add 1/4 cup of fresh grated coconut for variation.
