Ragi is an extremely nutritious millet, that resembles mustard seeds in appearance. Finger millet is especially valuable as it contains the amino acid methionine, which is lacking in the diets of the poor who live on starchy staples such as cassava, plantain, polished rice, or maize meal.

Ragi has rich source of calcium and other nutrients.

We can cook Roti/ or bread with ragi.  It can be crushed in flour mill to produce fine flour and can be cooked, baked, fried.  It can be mixed with wheat or Bajra flour for making delicious recipes.

There are many other dishes such as Handvo, khichdi (similar to rice).  Even sweets can be made of Ragi flour.
