Ragi in one ingredient that I thought was meant only for babies . As at home all babies are fed with a ragi porridge after 40 days in the evening by 6 , so their stomach is full and don’t disturb others around much in the nights . I did the same with my kids as well . So eating the left over porridge was the only thing that I did with ragi for decades ( as a kid to a grown up version of myself ) until one fine day tasted a ragi roti at moms place that was moist , soft , dark brown in colour and yum .   You could eat the roti on its own with out any sides . Found out the rotis were sent by karishma ( moms friend ) . Stored it in my mind and gave it a try at home for lunch . The rotis resulted perfect like what karishma had sent over . Happy me , as I found a new way experimenting using our local produce and added an unusual ingredient in my kitchen cupboard . I strongly feel it’s important to eat ethically , to consume food prepared using locally picked , high – quality organic produce
