Ragi Chapathi | Finger Millet Roti | Ragi Roti | Ragi Chapati


Ragi chapati is a type of Indian flatbread made with ragi flour, also known as finger millet flour. Ragi is a highly nutritious grain that is rich in protein, fiber, calcium, and other essential minerals. Ragi chapati is a healthier alternative to traditional wheat chapatis as it is gluten-free and has a lower glycemic index, making it an ideal choice for people with gluten intolerance or diabetes.

To prepare ragi chapatis, ragi flour is mixed with water to form a dough. The dough is then rolled out into thin circles and cooked on a hot griddle until it is lightly browned on both sides. Ragi chapatis are usually served hot with a variety of side dishes such as curries, chutneys, or raita.

Ragi chapatis are not only healthy but also delicious and easy to make. They have a slightly nutty flavor and a chewy texture that makes them a popular choice among health-conscious individuals. Additionally, they can be stored for a few days and are perfect for packing in lunch boxes or as a quick snack on the go.
