I am one of those people that are often told to not buy a rakhi, but if it is a staple in your home, as they say, you are going to have to do something about it. My rakhi recipe is based mostly on my time spent making it for my family over several years, which was a long time ago. I have adapted it to suit my own needs.
My rakhi is basically a mix of the ingredients used in the main recipe, namely chia seed, cashew nut, coconut oil, and ragi. The ragi in this particular recipe just has to be ragi, with no coconut or cashew or chia in it. I add the ragi to the milk and then add the cashew nuts and the coconut oil to the milk before stirring.
I also add a pinch of salt, so that it’s a little more neutral in taste, and then I pour it into a blender. I usually serve it with a side of coconut chutney, and I sometimes make it with rice or with steamed vegetables, but it’s a great anytime meal. You could have it with a salad for a healthy, hearty meal.
This is actually a recipe we found in one of our “How to Make Everything from Food” videos. In the video, we also talk about how important it is that you don’t over cook ragi. If you boil it too long the milk will turn off its own natural enzymes, which in turn will turn the milk into the ragi.
For the rakhi recipe, the key is to cook it for about 4 to 5 hours or so. When you make it, do NOT boil it. This will cause its flavor to go flat and lose its body. Instead, let it sit in the refrigerator and continue to cook the milk. The longer you let it cook, the better the flavor will be. In addition, I suggest you cook it for at least 8 hours, as this should give it enough time to cool off.
The milk’s natural enzymes won’t work on it in the end, so you have to heat it. Just make sure you cook it for at least 8 hours, as this should give it enough time to cool off.
This is one of those things that I think is so fundamental to the whole process that I have no clue how anyone managed to not know this the first time around. It’s also one of the reasons why I think the whole “cooking milk” thing is not such a good idea. I mean, it will make the flavor more intense, but even so, it has nothing to do with the milk itself.
Its not just that you do not want to burn your food at high heat. Its that you want to make sure that the food is cooling off quickly so it doesn’t stick to your food processor. Its also that you want the food to cool off as quickly as possible so it does not stick to your food pump. This is to minimize the chance of food splatters on the counter, and to minimize the chance of sticking your food pump in the stove.
It does sound like a pretty big job. It is. But we know the art of making food doesn’t require much time. I mean, how often have you watched a chef make a meal? It’s not like they take about 20 minutes to do it.
I know this sounds harsh. But its true. You have to be extremely careful with the food processor. The food processor has a lot of moving parts. It’s not exactly a home food processor. It is however, an extremely versatile piece of equipment and can make a lot of different things. I mean, think about it.
