Ragi is a very nutritious grain and I use it a lot in my day to day cooking. As I am following a low glycemic index meal plan these days, and Ragi being quite low on GI is one of great choice. Ragi is rich in dietary fibre and iron as well as great source of essential amino acids (building blocks for proteins) for body’s repair and growth.
