RAGI DOSAI

Ragi is the king of millets .There are many varieties of ragi. This is a whole grain and is a staple in many parts of South India.

The health benefits of ragi:

  • Ragi is a whole which is gluten free.
  • It is rich in fibre that helps with weight loss and diabetes.
  • It is packed with calcium,good carbs,aminoacids and vit.D
  • Reverts skin ageing,battles anemia also relaxes the body.

This is a whole grain which means that it contains all three parts of the kernel, the bran,germ and the endosperm . So it retains all essential nutrients that are lost due to processing.

Because of its nutritional value it can be placed in the pinnacle of food grains.
