As we already know Ragi is rich in protein, fiber and magnesium making it one of the best, most healthy grains to have.

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.
