Poor digestion means your gut health is compromised. Unless you take action to include more probiotics in your diet, your health could deteriorate faster. remember, a poor gut is the trigger for a compromised immune system and a series of diseases. In order to strengthen your gut and boost metabolism and digestion, let's learn to include more probiotics in our diet. The best thing is you can make natural pre and probiotics at home. For example, ragi ambali, which is different from what you have been watching on the Internet. In my MIL's village, they make ambali this way.

Let's get started by soaking 2 tbsp ragi atta in water for 30 minutes. It's time to boil 2-3 times the amount of water. when the water starts bubbling, stir the ragi paste in and cook on low flame until the mixture turns gooey. Now it's time to shift this cooked ragi paste to a mud pot or ceramic vessel or glass container. Keep covered with a cloth or loose lid at room temperature to allow good bacteria to enter the game and start their probiotic warfare.
HOW LOng do you need to ferment ambali?
This is exactly the amount of time it takes for curd to set in your area. In winters, it takes longer, but one time measure is to set curd at the same time. So when your curd is set, your ambali should also be ready to eat.
Now ambali is bland on its own. How can you make it delicious when it is ready to eat? As a north Indian, you can do this.
Mix with salt before eating and then pair ambali with banana chips or papad, curd/buttermilk along with a stir fry. I enjoy it with all stir-fries.
