Ragi Rotti (Finger Millet Flatbread)


Make your brunch time exciting with the super healthy ragi rotti (finger millet flatbread) along with coconut & coriander chutney. Ragi is amazingly healthy, nutritious and tasty – highly recommended for diabetics. This high protein, low GI super food is so delicious!! Ragi is one of the staples in Karnataka and cooked in so many ways. But my favorite is the rotti or flatbread. So flavorful and balanced – a must try.
