4 Ragi Breakfast Recipes for Weight Loss

Ragi flour is prepared by either crushing dried grains or sprouting, drying and then grinding them. Ragi is a rich source of good carbohydrates and since it is too thin to be polished or processed, it is mostly consumed in its purest form. Because of its high nutritional value, ragi can be placed at the pinnacle of food grains. Ragi is gluten free and highly suitable for people who are gluten or lactose intolerant.
