Ambil is a dish made from finger millet. Or as popularly known in India, Ragi or Nachni. Finger millet or ragi has a lot of health benefits that makes this a wonder grain. Ragi is one of the best non-dairy source of calcium. It helps in controlling diabetes. It is gluten free and is an excellent source of iron. Rich in anti-oxidants, it work as a natural relaxant. And the high amount of dietary fiber in it helps with weight loss by preventing unwanted cravings.

Finger millet flour is easily available in India. Outside India you would find this in Indian or Asian markets. I’ll recommend buying an organic flour brand as it will be healthier. You can also prepare this dish with sorghum flour / jowar flour. Another wonder grain which is wholesome.

About Ambil

Ambil is a Maharashtrian dish which is very simple to make. It has a hint of ginger, garlic and cumin. You can prepare this amazingly healthy dish within 10 minutes.

Ambil is an age old recipe that is passed down from generations. I learnt this recipe from my grandma. She was a very health conscious lady who had a large variety of healthy recipes. But I have made little changes to the taste as per my preference.

I have added green chili paste and dry date powder. If you have diabetes, you can make this dish without the date powder. Date powder is easily available both in and outside India. I purchased a very good quality of date powder on amazon.

Serve Ambil with drizzle of butter milk on it. But for those who are vegan can have it without buttermilk as well, it would still taste good.

At my home we usually have Ambil in breakfast. You can also serve Ambil as a thick drink during summers. It is soothing to the tummy. You can also enjoy this dish as a soup.

So, try out this super healthy recipe and let me know if this was your tummy to heart moment…
