Healthy Ragi Recipes (Indian Gluten-Free )

My pot full of Ragi recipes is here!

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.


For all of you who have been asking me for a tutorial on gluten-free cookies, here's presenting a super yummy treat for you all. 

But first, what is gluten? Should you go gluten-free just because your friend has? 

Of course, not!  I believe your body will tell you what it wants. So instead of following a "fad" diet, ask yourself how you feel after your diet? If you feel bloated or experience indigestion, your diet could be blamed. Switch to a low-carb diet to see if that helps. 

All in all, you should try to include all ingredients to plan your meals. A wholesome, balanced diet to be precise. This includes both gluten and gluten-free flours. For example, I am not allergic to gluten,  so  I try to include the best of both worlds into my dietary regimen to benefit more from a nutritional point of view. Of course, if you are gluten sensitive, you should not wait before transitioning to a gluten-free diet.

So this post is more about ways to include gluten-free alternatives in your diet. I love ragi for all its nutritional benefits. It is packed with iron and calcium. There's a lot of fiber too when you sprout ragi and make sprouted ragi flour, like I do.

Did you know sprouted ragi atta is more delicious and nutritious than packaged flour?

I have stopped buying alternative flours because I know I can recreate healthier options at home - sprouting or without sprouting.

It's a labor of love - love for your body - dedication to keep yourself healthy.

So let's see how to sprout ragi and make ragi atta and then use the same flour in a baked recipe.

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.

To my surprise, when I offered hubby to taste them, he said "these are really good." Need I ask for more? But
