RAGI ADAI | FINGER MILLET ADAI - STEP BY STEP

RAGI ADAI  - DIABETIC RECIPE|DIET RECIPES



Ragi Adai -Healthy ,Gluten free recipe. Ragi or Finger Millet or Kezhvaragu is a vital food in South India. There are lots of recipes made with ragi flour, but this dish prepared with the combination of ragi and drumstick leaves is unbeatable. A very healthy and delicious adai ,simple to prepare . Those who are in diet , can have these adai as it is very filling and good for diabetics.

Green leaves and herbs are more nutirtious than the green vegetables. One such green leaves packed with vitamins and minerals is drumstick leaves or murungakeerai. It has got amazing healthy benefits . They taste delicious when added to dosa's , tender greens are added to cooked lentils, It is also stir fried as such or along with other vegetables to make a delicious side dish. 

My favorite way of eating theses leaves is in this form of delicious adai. During my vacation trip to India , my MIL used to prepare this often . Discarding the leaves from the stem is the only time consuming process, the rest is easy.   I love to have with more onions  and drumstick leaves, adjust it according to your taste buds.
