Ragi Flour Recipe collectionRagi, aka nachni or finger millet, is an excellent ingredient to add to your grocery list as it has a lot of nutrition and is a healthier replacement of rice and wheat. In India, the whole millet is crushed and a flour is made out it. This ragi flour is used extensively in various recipes and contrary to what is actually believed, it is quite versatile.

Ragi Flour Recipes for Breakfast

Nachni DosaNachni Dosa

Who doesn’t like dosas and uttapas for breakfast? Ragi, being mostly used in the Southern states of India, is incorporated in almost all their famous dishes. The nutrient rich ragi flour combined with vibrant green coriander and other flavors like onion and curds, makes for delicious Ragi and coriander uttapaNachni dosas can also be made by grinding urad dal and then fermenting for some hours and they turn out delicious!! Combining various healthy flours like jowar and bajra along with nachni makes wonderful Multigrain idlis which can be had for breakfast.

If you want to make something with vegetables, you can make Ragi Upma and add onions, carrots or vegetables of your choice to it. Another way to incorporate more vegetables is by making Nutritious chilas with any combinations of vegetables you want to put.

Healthy Ragi Flour Recipes

As we already know Ragi is rich in protein, fiber and magnesium making it one of the best, most healthy grains to have. People don’t realize that a lot of their dishes would be much healthier if make with ragi. Poha is a rich source of iron and together with ragi flour and other vegetables, it can make for a super healthy yet delicious Poha Nachni Handvo. Chips and dips go well together but are super unhealthy! it is better to make Crispies with Hummus wherein we make crackers with ragi flour and bake them while hardly using any oil.

Bread doesn’t have a good impact on our body as it is made with maida. So making a Multigrain bread, replacing the maida with flours like ragi, jowar and bajra, is a much better option and can be had guilt free. With those same flours, you can even make wonderful 4 flour dosa which can be had any time of the day! This dosa is a great choice for diabetics and is easy to digest.

Ragi Flour Recipes for Snacks 

Oats Methi Multiflour KhakhraOats Methi Multiflour Khakhra

Making a snack with ragi will usually impress your friends and family because it is hardly ever used for regular snacking. Chaklis can be made with a mix of ragi, soya and rice flour and they turn out different and crispy.  Different types of khakhras can also be made with nachni like Nachni Sesame Khakhra and Oats Methi Multiflour Khakhra with the goodness of different flours, iron rich fenugreek leaves and nutritious oats.

To add crunch to snacks like bhel, add Baked Nachni sev instead of the regular fried besan sev. This will not only elevate the taste of the bhel but also give a healthy component to it. Muthias are a part of a typical Gujarati house and make for a great snack. Nachni Methi muthias, a variation of it that can easily be made in the microwave or in a steamer, are flavored garlic, ginger and green chillies, making them irresistible.

Ragi Flour Recipes for Sweets

It is so unusual to think that ragi flour might be used in preparation of sweet delicacies, but it is actually not unusual at all. Just like whole wheat flour is used to make various sweets, so is ragi flour. The most common sweets are Nachni Laddoos that are usually eaten by pregnant women to build up their iron and vitamin reserves. A healthier version of regular sheera, Ragi Sheera, can also be made using sugar substitute and Ragi flour.

Similarly you can even make a Healthy Peda without any milk or cream!! Made with only daria, nachni and honey, this recipe is quick and has less calories! When combined with jowar and bajra, 3 flour Golpapdi can be made which is sweetened with jaggery.

Ragi Flour Recipes for Rotis/Parathas

Rotis and parathas are a part of any Indian's staple diet which he eats on the regular. Replacing the regular wheat or maida rotis with Ragi rotis proves much better for the health as it is gluten free. Stuff them with paneer and some sauce and you get Ragi Roti stuffed with Paneer Pesto! There are so many variations that can take place, do try them!
