Ragi (Finger millet) has lot of nutritional benefits. We can make many variety of dishes with ragi. This Ragi Halwa (Kezhvaragu Halwa) is very simple to make and it is a perfect and healthy dessert.  Always jaggery and coconut goes well with Ragi. For ragi laddoo, we use jaggery and ragi and for ragi puttu, we use ragi, sugar and coconut. So I love this combination.  A yummy way to consume Ragi and hope you will enjoy too.
