Ragi & Rice Flour Spicy Rotti

Ragi/Finger millet is one of the healthy millet and is used more and more these days. I have prepared Ragi -Rice flour rotti and rotti is loved by many. Ragi Rice flour rotti tastes so Yummy.
Here I have tried Ragi/Finger millet flour and very little amount of rice flour which adds to the taste to rotti. Adding rice flour gives a crisp and yummy taste and it holds the rotti dough in good form.


I have also used botte gourd coconut, ondelag aleaves carrots, ginger and green chilly.

 It is always better to eat home cooked food. Use of spices also should be considered while cooking. Too many spices should not be eaten regularly.
