Ragi Puttu: A Delicious and Nutritious Indian Breakfast!


What is Ragi Puttu?

Ragi Puttu is a steamed dish made from finger millet (ragi) flour and freshly grated coconut. This nutritious and delicious dish is often enjoyed as a breakfast or snack, typically paired with bananas, jaggery, or savory curries. Its soft, crumbly texture and earthy flavor make it a unique culinary experience that stands out in the realm of traditional South Indian cuisine.

Health Benefits of Ragi Puttu
Ragi Puttu is more than just a flavorful dish; it’s a nutritional powerhouse that offers numerous health benefits:


Rich in Calcium: Ragi is incredibly rich in calcium, which is essential for strengthening bones and teeth. It's particularly beneficial for growing children and ageing adults who need to maintain bone density.
High in Fiber:The high fibre content in ragi aids digestion and promotes weight loss by keeping you fuller for longer. It helps regulate bowel movements and prevents constipation.
Low Glycemic Index: Ragi has a low glycemic index, making it ideal for managing blood sugar levels. It's an excellent choice for diabetics and those looking to maintain stable energy levels throughout the day.
Packed with Nutrients: Ragi is a treasure trove of essential amino acids, iron, and antioxidants. These nutrients play a crucial role in overall health, from boosting immunity to preventing anaemia.
Gluten-Free: As a naturally gluten-free grain, ragi is perfect for those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease, providing a safe and nutritious alternative to wheat-based products.

Ayurveda and Ragi
In Ayurveda, ragi is revered for its cooling properties and its ability to balance the Pitta dosha. It is considered a natural relaxant that helps reduce stress and anxiety, making it an ideal food for those looking to enhance their mental well-being. Incorporating Ragi Puttu into your diet can contribute to overall wellness and support a balanced lifestyle.
