Ragi is a very respectable grain because of its undisputed goodness and high nutrition content! No wonder it is used in almost all regions of India, in forms ranging from pancakes to porridge.

The Stuffed Ragi Pancake is a very exciting way to consume this wonderful ingredient because it combines nutritional benefits with fabulous taste! The ragi and whole wheat flour pancakes are stuffed with a fibre-rich mixed veg filling, which not only adds to the taste but also helps to control cholesterol.

The pancakes are devoid of maida and also cooked in minimal oil to make them heart-friendly. You will also thoroughly enjoy the Oriental twist in this dish, brought about by the use of ingredients like bean sprouts, spring onions and chilli sauce!

Stuffed Ragi Pancakes with a glassful Spinach Spectacular will keep you going full force all day!

Healthy option to pancakes made of maida and not contributing any nutrient. To add to it the veggies added as stuffing give fibre and a feeling of satiety. Make it and serve it and enjoy it when hot.
