RAGI SEEDS BY KERALA FOODS
In Konkan and Goa ragi is very popular and satva, pole (dosa), bhakri, ambil (a sour porridge), Pappad are very common preparations. Nachani Ladus are common in some families. In Maharashtra, bhakri (भाकरी in Marathi), a type of flat bread is prepared using finger millet (ragi) flour. The natural fat content in ragi is lower than all other cereals. Also, this fat is in its unsaturated form. Thus, substituting it for wheat and rice is a good choice for people trying to lose weight. It also contains an amino acid called tryptophan which reduces appetite.
