Ragi Idli Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

Do you know that Ragi helps in managing cholesterol problems. Ragi is an excellent plant source for Iron. I have earlier shared the Ragi Dosai recipe and today I am going to share the Ragi Idli recipe. Ragi is easy to digest and fermented ragi is extremely good for health. I had tried dosa and Idli with the same batter. Both turned out to be excellent and tasty. You can add your choice of vegetables in the idli batter. For the ragi idlis , jaggery and sesame oil were perfect accompaniments, though I also served it with coconut chutney and milagai podi. A very healthy breakfast recipe.
