Millet Flour Recipes Vegan, Gluten-Free India [Ragi Rusk Recipe With Dates by Ravneet Bhalla]

Are you wondering how to make rusk at home? Are you pondering whether there is anything like a healthy eggless rusk recipe with ragi or finger millet? Well, until I had tried out the ragi rusks with dates, I wasn't too sure how a biscotti with millets might taste. But to my surprise, the ragi Indian toast tastes the same as saunf rusk with no flavor difference from the typical maida rusks that you buy from the market. So one try at making ragi rusks without yeast is a must.

 Eggless Saunf Ragi Rusk Recipe With Dates (Vegan, Gluten-Free recipe by Ravneet Bhalla)

I make my own ragi flour at home. This time I have not used sprouted ragi flour for saunf rusk, but for the ragi biscuits with jaggery that I shared a few days back, I had used my homemade sprouted ragi atta.

This is homemade ragi flour that I often make after soaking the millet overnight, drying it the next day in the sun or under the fan until it is fully dried before grinding the millet to powder.' This homemade millet powder is more nutritious than your store-bought flours.

Why Make Millet Flours at Home

All food sources have some amount of anti-nutrition factors. These in large quantities can inhibit nutrition absorption or can trigger thyroid dysfunction. But processes like soaking, germination, roasting reduces these anti-nut factors. If your thyroid levels are very higher than normal, it is better to consume sprouted grains and legumes, that include millets too. I am a certified nutritionist. Hope I was able to resolve your issue to some extent
Ragi benefits: Did you know ragi or finger millet is a rich source of iron that makes it a perfect food option for anemic patients? A rich source of fiber, ragi is no less than a wonder grain - a superfood. The whole grain contains bran, endosperm, and germ, which adds to their fiber content. The gluten-free grain is a staple in south India - and is overloaded with calcium, fiber, amino acids, vitamin D, and good carbohydrates. Since it is a good source of calcium, you need vitamin D to absorb calcium. Your body makes Vitamin D3 from a reaction to the UV rays. Vitamin D2 is sourced from vitamin D fortified milk and poultry sources, such as egg yolk, fatty fish, and liver. Ragi for diabetics is a good low carb option. It is a skin-friendly grain since it is packed with amino acids that help revert skin aging.

The antioxidant-rich ragi benefits those fighting stress, depression, helping you manage cancer symptoms. The high content of dietary fiber makes ragi a superfood for weight loss enthusiasts. Here's my favorite ragi and oats cookies recipe with jaggery and without baking powder/soda:

Ingredients for Ragi recipe of rusks

1 cup- 240ml 1cup-ragi (finger millet flour) 1/4 cup or 3 tbsp oil- I have used 3 tbsp olive oil 8-10 dates- according to taste or sweetener of choice (SOAK OVERNIGHT or for 30 minutes in hot water) 1 tsp- fennel seeds 1/2 cup+1/4 cup- water 1/2 tsp- baking powder 1/4 tsp- baking soda 2 tbsp flaxmeal plus 5 tbsp water

How to make rusk at home with ragi flour (millet rusk recipe indian with dates]

Soak dates overnight or steep in hot water for 10minutes before grinding it to paste with 1/2 cup of water. Add sauf or fennel and extra virgin olive oil or any oil of preference. Turn into paste.
Soak flaxmeal in water for 10 minutes to make flax egg.
Mix flax egg with the dates paste. Add ragi flour, baking powder and soda.
Mix. Preheat the oven, airfryer, otg, convection to 180 degrees for 10 minutes.
You may bake ragi rusk in cooker or kadahi. If so, Layer a cooker with sand or salt. Place a cooker stand inside. Set it for preheating.
Pour into a greased baking pan. Make sure you fill half of the pan. So take the size of the baking pan accordingly. If you take a smaller baking dish and fill it more than half, the cake will break on top as in my case.
Bake for 40-50 minutes at 180 degrees C.
In cooker, place the baking tin over the stand and bake on a medium flame for 30-50 minutes.
Check the ragi cake after 30 minutes. Bake longer accordingly in cooker.
Once the eggless ragi cake is baked, allow it to cool down completely.
Slice and bake the thin slices again to make homemade rusks with millets.
Bake each side for 20 minutes at 160 degrees celsius.
Let the gluten-free rusks cool down before dunking the Indian toast in a cup of warm milk or hot tea.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets. why you should not eat millets unsoaked #shortsfeed #shortsvideo #shorts  Is it necessary to soak millets?
