Divine Recipe shared by Art of Living Bloggers

06 Jul

Not everything is revealed to everybody! That’s why we say, Raaz Ki Baat Ko Raaz Hi Rehne De! Of course, a few (like AoL Bloggers) are blessed to have special entitlements to some of the sacred secrets! Hence, this rare nugget of wisdom is being shared only with the readers of this blog.

Here we go. Sh sh sh….

Art of Living secret

Recently a long-time The Art of Living enthusiast shared a secret given to him by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji . This incident had taken place a few years back, when Gurudev had emerged out of a period of voluntary Agyatvas. According to rules, a person in Agyatvas should not be in touch with people known to him nor should he be identified by anybody. So during Gurudev’s Agyatvas, no one knew where He was and what He was doing.

The AoL enthusiast was among the select few who got an opportunity to meet Gurudev soon after He emerged out of Agyatvas. Gurudev looked quite fit and seemed to have lost a couple of kilos. Our dear enthusiast, who had an impressive build, was struggling for years to get rid of extra kilos with gymming, treatments, dieting and unexplainable creative ways. He asked Gurudev about the secret of losing weight easily.

Gurudev replied that during the period of Agyatvas, he cooked his own food and his staple diet mainly consisted of one dish – Ragi Dosas. He was also kind enough to share His recipe for making delicious and nutritious Ragi dosas. Here is the Recipe:

Ragi Dosa - The Art of Living also promotes Ragi
Mix Ragi flour, salt, coriander leaves, green chillies. Add sufficient water to form a batter of thin pouring consistency. Set aside for four hours. Add finely chopped cucumber to the batter. Mix well.

The batter is ready. Make yummy dosas. Relish them hot.

Try them out and let us know of your experience. And of course, remember to tell us how many kilos you manage to shed.

PS: Here are some interesting facts about Ragi:

Ragi (Finger Millet), is a grain cultivated since ancient times in dry regions of Asia and Africa. It is considered one of the most nutritious cereals and is widely used in Southern Indian and Ethiopian dishes. Ragi is a rich source of Calcium, Iron, Protein, Fiber and other minerals.The cereal has low fat content and contains mainly unsaturated fat. The names of Ragi in other languages are Taidalu ( Telangana ), Kelvaragu, Aariyam (Tamil), Panjapulle (Malayalam), Maduva (in some parts of north India) and Nachani (Marathi). It is called Ragi in Kannada and Telugu.

Ragi can be enjoyed in different ways like Ragi Roti, Ragi Dosa,Ragi Porridge, Ragi Upma, Ragi Idli and Ragi Biscuits.

    Nice post. I am surprised not to find here a mention of the unique Ragi drink served everyday at the Art of Living Ashram. Can you share the recipe for that as well.

      Thank you for making up for a glaring omission on our part. Ragi Malt is delicious and very nutritious drink. Art of Living Ashram has popularized this drink in so small measure. Ragi Malt is served here in place of tea and coffee

    What they serve at the Ashram is called Ragi Malt. It’s a highly nutritious mix of sprouted and powdered Ragi with other lentils like Green Gram. This powder is mixed in hot milk with jaggery and cardamom. You can pick up the Ragi Malt packet from the Ashram Divine shop if you want to try at home.
