Ragi powder - 1/2 cups (now a days it is readily available in the market)
Sago - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Butter milk - 2 cups
Green chilly - 1 no
Ginger - 1/2 inch piece
Curry Leaves - 1/4 cup
Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup
Mango - 1/4 (optional)
Water - 2 cups

Mix Ragi powder in water and bring it to a dosa batter paste consistency. Ensure that no lumps are formed. Soak sago in water for about 30 mins till they are soft. In a hard bottom vessel add 1 cup of water and soaked sago. Stir well and when the water starts boiling add the Ragi batter and keep stirring. Ensure that no lumps is formed. To check whether the ragi is cooked, take a little of the mixture in spoon and touch it with wet hand. If the mixture doesnot stick to hand it is cooked well. Remove from flame. 

Cut mango into thin pieces, dice ginger into fine pieces, cut chilly into half. Cook all of them in 1/4 cup of water and a pinch of salt. When the mango pieces turn soft add it to the ragi mixture. Add the butter milk and the required salt and mix well. Decorate it with curry leaves and coriander leaves. 

If 2 glasses of this is taken in the morning, it is very refreshing and gives a filling feeling. It cools the body too.
