Oats and Ragi Chilla

FINAL 2

A healthy and wholesome breakfast option. It has the goodness of oats along with ragi. In our daily diet, we seldom incorporate other flours such as sorghum, ragi or bajra. Most of the time we eat wheat flour, semolina or plain flour. But it is very healthy to incorporate other flours into our diet.

Ragi is very easy to digest and replete with nutrients.

Try this very simple recipe for a healthy start of the day!
