Ragi Sweet Puttu

Ragi (finger millet) one of the nourishing n cheap food item....The best choice to keep your health fit in regard to bones and nerves is to try ragi....People with obesity can reduce half of their weight within 15 days by inserting ragi foods in their daily menu. It is also a great boon for diabetics. It is good for anemic persons also. Normally people with anemia don’t get sleep at nights, body becomes flabby and they cannot be active in their routine work if they have any ragi food for supper they may notice some changes. Ragi is most preferable to ladies in their menopause stage.Ragi filters unwanted water from our body and makes our bones and nerves tight fit. Ragi contains 300% of calcium whereas milk has only 80%... Ragi can be given to babies as young as 3 months old. In addition to mother's milk they can be feed by diluted ragi soup. Babies will be healthy n chubby by having this healthy food..For every 100 gm ragi gives 7.3 gmof proteins, 2.7 gm of minerals, 72 gm of carbohydrates and 328 calories... i love ragi as soup, dosai, also as idlies...here is my another favourite recipe from ragi...its really an easy recipe, can be prepared within few minutes, they goes prefect for breakfast, snacks also for supper..healthy dish, with simple ingredients...Am sending to JFI-Ragi hosted by Madhuram.
