Ragi muffins – finger millet muffins – easy baking recipes

Now looking at the muffin , you can say they are chocolate muffins. Isn’t it? But no, I have not added any chocolate based ingredient in it. Of course, I told my son they were chocolate muffins and he ate them happily. I have mentioned before that my son loves chocolate cakes all the time. I was a little apprehensive that he might guess that it wasn’t a chocolate one. But he totally loved it. He said it was yumm. And then my two year old loved it too and had almost half a muffin. Its quite filling too. What…

Raagi onion pakodas / fingermillet onion fritters

Deep fried snacks is a rare thing at my place. I do make puris atleast once in a month or two. But sometimes we do crave for these snacks along with our evening tea especially during the weekends. So I made this sometime ago during one such weekend and we really enjoyed it. I gave a small twist by adding the raagi flour to the normal onion pakodas. Don’t know how healthier a deep fried snack can get??!!But it tasted nice and was quite crispy. Even my son who is a picky eater and is very reluctant to try out…

Raagi/finger millet soup

Raagi or finger millet is the best natural source of iron and hence good for building haemoglobin. I was also advised by the doctor to take raagi as it is a very rich and readily available source of iron. I used to take a porridge made of raagi,milk and sugar almost everyday and got quite bored of the taste. But then I now occasionally enjoy this quick soup with or without the vegetables. You can also just omit the vegetables, add yogurt to the cooked raagi soup for a different taste. Source- Adige mane ruchi(with some changes)

 

Spinach and ragi bread

I got the idea of baking this bread when I made the spinach potato naans sometime ago. I have followed almost the same recipe just with the addition of ragi / finger millet flour to make it a more healthier. I would say it tasted nice, but not the best among all the varities of bread I have tasted.But it really tasted wonderful with some tea to go with. Do try and tell me about it. After 2 hours the dough doubles in volume. Punch the dough and knead the dough for another 4-5 minutes.

 

How to make Ragi oats dosai- easy breakfast recipes

This dosa is quite similar to the rava dosa I had posted a couple of days ago. I just played with the quantity of ingredients and added some ragi and oats to the batter to make it a tad healthier. It was also a good change from the usual dosas we have for breakfast. I find the preparation of these kinds of dosas so easy and it goes very well with the pre prepared milagai podi though I managed to serve them with tomato onion chutney. Serve hot with chutney or milagai podi.
