Instant ragi dosa is tasty, healthy, easy to make  and ideal to serve either for breakfast or as a snack. It is vegan and gluten-free.

Millets are the new age food. Many people are now aware of the benefits and including them regularly in their diet.

What is a millet ?

Millet is a small cereal that belongs to the grass family, Poaceae. It was first grown in Africa, soon spread to Asia. Different varieties of millets are grown in the world.

What are the benefits of millet?

Millet is rich in nutrients. It is rich in dietary fibre and contains minerals as calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, selenium as well as  vitamins like folate,  pantothenic acid,  riboflavin, Vitamin B6, C, E and K. The high fibre content found in it helps to reduce bad  cholesterol (LDL) while boosting good cholesterol(HDL). The phosphorous content helps the body to repair itself and also in the formation of cells. The iron and folate helps prevent anaemia  by maintaining adequate hemoglobin levels. The millets are usually prepared from the whole meal, the nutrients are retained in the food that is consumed.

What are the different kind of millet ?

The different type of millets are jowar, foxtail millet, finger millet, pearl millet, barnyard millet, kodo millet, little millet, proso millet.

What is finger millet ?

Finger millet or Ragi as it is commonly known as, is an important cop grown and consumed in India. It is rich in minerals, calcium, dietary fibre and anti-oxidants. Ragi mudde is the staple food of many people. It is also used in making sweets and other dishes. I regularly make Ragi Idli and Ragi Thalipeeth.

About the event:

In the month of April, the theme at Shhhhh Secretly Cooking Challenge is Millets, it was suggested by Aruna Saras Chandra, a wonderful blogger at Vasus Veg Kitchen. I liked her bread gulab jamun, it is a quick-fix sweet that you can make. I love cooking with millets and jumped the bandwagon. My partner was Narmadha from Nams Corner, she gave me oil and coriander as the secret ingredients and I decided to make this Instant Ragi Dosa. I gave her salt and sugar and the outcome is the delicious Foxtail Millet Sweet Pongal, 

Instant Ragi Dosa comes as a rescue, you can make it easily and it is a straight forward recipe.
