For the slurry

Other ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp organic jaggery powder or date palm jaggery
  • ¼ tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 drops of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp homemade peanut butter
  • Raw cacao nibs to garnish
  • 1 tbsp nuts, finely chopped to garnish (as per choice)


Making the slurry

  • Take ragi into a bowl
  • Add half cup of water
  • Whisk well to ensure there are no lumps


  • In a thick bottomed pan, take two cups of water.
  • Once the water boils, add the slurry, and stir it once.
  • Let it simmer on a low flame.
  • Once the mixture thickens, add the jaggery powder and cardamom powder next.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Once it cools down, add this to the blender with peanut butter and vanilla extract. Blend to a fine consistency.
  • Transfer into a container, garnish with raw cacao nibs and chopped nuts.
  • Let it sit in the freezer for four to five hours.
  • Serve chilled.
  • Add-ons: Top with pumpkin or chia seeds


  • Ragi, also known as finger millet, is rich in fiber, protein, calcium, and potassium.
  • It also has more polyphenols as compared to rice and other grains and is safe for diabetics, too.
  • You can replace ragi with raw banana flour or almond flour, too.
  • Ragi contains the amino acids - tryptophan, valine, methionine, and threonine and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans too.

    Is there a substitute for peanut butter for those with nut allergies?
    Thank you.

      Hi Suzanne, In case of nut allergies, we suggest completely skipping the ingredient. You can alternate it with sattu flour/rice flour/oats flour slurry or even coconut cream if it suits you.
