Ragi idiyappam makes a super healthy and filling breakfast. I usually make it for breakfast or for evening tiffin to serve the kids after they return from school. Ragi is called as “Finger millet” in English and “Kezhvaragu” in Tamil. Also known as Ragi Sevai, this recipe is gluten free, vegan and steamed that makes a fantastic kick start to your day when eaten for breakfast as any dish with millets are wholesome in nature.
Basically any kind of steamed food is good for your health as the steaming process prevents loss of nutrition and color of the food. No extra calories get added to the food we eat so we can enjoy the food with complete nutritional benefits without a shade of guilt.
Ragi Idiyappam is one of the healthiest tiffin items. I have mentioned the health benefits of including millets in our daily diet on several occasions. Ragi is suitable for adults, aged and even infants.
