About Ragi Or Finger Millet Or Nachani Bhakari

Traditionally bhakari is prepared using Finger millet flour, salt and hot/warm water and cooked on griddle and then directly on chulhas or Chul. It is best served hot with Chilli Techa or any spicy veg, non-veg curry. It is gluten free Indian flat bread and staple food in Maharashtra, Gujarat, South region. Ragi roti/Bhakri is filling and wholesome and also called as farmers food as requires less time for preparation, goes well with almost everything. In some of the places, like In Goa it is prepared using either wheat flour or rice flour. In this recipe I have added wheat flour to increase the elasticity and can be stored for little longer period.
