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.
