Ragi Dosa / Whole Millet Crepes

Ragi / Finger Millet is a powerhouse of nutrients. I don't know how many people are aware of the health benefits of ragi. In south India it is a staple food and is consumed in many ways starting from childhood. Babies are fed ragi porridge from the time they are 6 months old daily. It is gluten free and easily digestible for kids. It makes their bones strong and help them grow. There are different varieties of recipes with ragi. In Kerala we make Puttu, Porridge, Ada, Roti, Idiyappam with ragi. Ragi can be washed, dried, powdered and stored in airtight jars. Today my recipe is ragi dosa. My kids had it without any fuss. I am a happy mom :)
