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.

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.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
