Tizzan is considered as one of the most healthier drinks from kids to adults or old people. Tizzan is made out of Nachne (Ragi) extract or you can use Nachne flour.Since Nachne is so very rich is calcium and iron so its good for growing kids.

Tizzan is very easy to make with simple home ingredients but still so much rich in nutrients and filling.Mostly is made by using goan coconut black jaggery(made from coconut)used in most of the sweet dishes prepared in Goa like Dodol, Alle pelle,etc,than other main ingredient is coconut milk.So just imagine when so healthier ingredients come together how tasty and wonderful the dish will be.:)
