Ragi Rava Kheer (Ragi Ki Kheer) is a versatile, extremely healthy version of the Kheer, the wonderful pudding that is a favourite dessert across the country. Various versions of it exist across India in the form of Payasam (south), Payesh (Bengal), Phirni (Punjab), and Gil-e-Firdaus (Hyderabad).  

Ragi Rava Kheer utilizes the ultra-healthy mixture of ragi (finger millet) and rava (semolina) and proves to be the perfect dessert which can be prepared in a jiffy, especially when you suddenly have guests at home or decide to make a dessert at someone’s request. One of the best qualities of ragi rava kheer is that it is a kid-friendly recipe; a healthy dessert that can also be enjoyed by kids, and it is one of those rare dishes that kids will actually enjoy eating. 

It can even be given to toddlers and it is believed to be a wholesome meal for babies. Making Ragi Rava Kheer (Ragi Payasam) is extremely easy as well. All one needs to do is heat the sweetened condensed milk and milk together. Sugar can be substituted for sweetened condensed milk in this mixture. Next, one needs to add the washed ragi rava to this mixture and let it simmer till they get cooked, before adding cardamom powder to lend it the rich sweetness that the Kheer has. 

Garnishing the Kheer with condiments such as pistachios and almond flakes is a sure shot way of making kheer: a healthy, flavourful bowl of dessert. This dessert is rich in protein, has a cooling effect on the body (according to Ayurveda), lowers cholesterol levels and is a great source of energy.
