It is been log I have posted a Kid’s lunch box recipe. In this post, I will be sharing the recipe of Ragi Crackers. I make the savory crackers with Ragi Flour and Pasta carries those with her choice of dip to school at times.
Ragi Flour/ Nachni Flour and its use in cooking!
The Millet is a lookalike of Mustard Seed. Ragi aka Nachni Flour is a nutritious millet. The flour is also known as Nachni Flour and the millet itself is known as Finger millet. In India, flour is made out of this millet. Ragi is being used in India considering the nutritious value that this millet provides.
Ragi Idli, Ragi Dosa, agi sankati or ragi muddha, Ragi Roti, Ragi Paratha, Ragi Upma, Ragi Putu, Ragi Halwa, Ragi Ladoo, Ragi Barfi are to name a few Ragi dishes available in India in different parts of the Country. The women in several parts of the country are provided with a porridge prepared with Ragi after giving birth. Ragi is used in making baked goodies such as Ragi Bread or Ragi cracker as well.
Benefits of Ragi!
- Ragi is a great source of Carbohydrate;
- It contains amino acid and methionine;
- Ragi is a gluten-free millet and hence is a great millet for gluten-intolerant people;
- Ragi is a calcium reach millet;
- It helps in controlling diabetes;
- It is good for the heart;
- Ragi is Vitamin-D rich and helps in making the skin younger;
- Ragi is anti-oxidant reach;
- It helps in managing body weight;
- Considering all the above-mentioned benefits Ragi is very good for Toddlers and growing kids and also for the lactating mothers.
Ragi is good for the growing up kids and can be easily incorporated while making baked goodies. Needless to say, I use it to make different dishes for the little one. Pasta though is a non-fussy eater, however, she loves the Ragi Cracker most than other dishes that I make with Ragi. She carries the crackers with her choice of Dip to school and enjoys the same.
