Ragi, a wonder grain

I try to include the millets in to my family’s diet by making varieties rather than using it only for making Bhakri or chapati/roti.

We became familiar with this wonderful grain here in Mumbai, as in Maharashtra it’s used on regular basis as this is easily available here. I was advised by my family Doctor to include Ragi into my kids diet due to its various health benefits.

Therefore I try to use it wherever I can. Here is my collection of recipes with ragi/finger millet, which will present this super food in a whole new avatar. You may like to try these recipes 👇👇
