Ragi Roti / Rotti ( Millet ) Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 07:43:00
Ragi roti is mainly consumed in South India. Ragi (Finger millet or african millet or nachni ) is highly rich in calcium. Infants are usually fed with porridge prepared out of Ragi. Usually, ragi is first washed and then dried up in the sun and later on it is floured in the mill. Many dishes are prepared out of ragi like upma, dosa, sevai, idli and so on. I have shown ragi roti here, which is a very healthy and a nutritious breakfast.
