Shilpa Shetty just showed us how to cook a healthy version of dosa using ragi. And the recipe is equally hassle-free.
Ragi or finger millet is known to have a lot of health benefits. It improves digestion, boosts respiratory health, increases energy levels and detoxifies the body. It is also rich in dietary fibre which keeps the stomach full, minimising appetite and promoting weight loss.
“Our superfood ragi ensures that your meal is loaded with nutrients. Serve it with sambar and chutneys of your choice, and it makes for a filling & delicious meal,” Shilpa wrote alongside the recipe video that she shared on Instagram.
