Breakfast recipes made with Ragi atta

Ragi is one of the most underrated grains in India. Grown the most in Karnataka, this finger millet has been overshadowed by the popularity of rice for a while. But as more and more people are becoming health-conscious and mindful of what they eat, Ragi is slowly taking the centre stage. Ragi flour has become one of the best alternatives to wheat flour and provides several health benefits that wheat just cannot.

Ragi flour is rich in proteins and antioxidants. It contains natural high fibres that ease digestion and keep one feeling full for longer periods. Hence it aids in weight loss and enhances general heart health too. Ragi flour is particularly good for children as it increases bone density and improve growth and development of the body.

Aashirvaad Ragi Flour is the best Ragi atta to use in your daily diet. It is made from whole Ragi grown by trusted farmers in India.
