Ragi Wheat Bread with spinach …no yeast

ragi bread

In the morning, newspaper was yet to arrive, so while sipping my tea I looked at another medium of information, face book and after taking a quick look what other bloggers were up to and seeing their beautiful creations.  I decided to bake bread.

After finishing my daily chores I went to buy ragi errrr…. rye flour. I wanted to bake rye bread if you have seen a baking book you must have noticed beautiful rye bread in it.   But in confusion I bought ragi flour.

Ragi Bread

I realized my mistake very soon and start searching what we can do with ragi flour.  Internet is really a good friend, guide and with each passing day I am getting more and more addictive to it. Finally I found an interesting as well as an easy recipe with ragi flour.

Interestingly it didn’t require yeast so an instant affair.  Though I made some changes like I doubled the curd and use milk to make a smooth batter. Earlier the dough was kind of tight dough. The texture came out was soft and we all had this bread in lunch instead of our usual chapatti.  It was so wholesome we all enjoyed it.  Next I will replace the sugar with salt to make savory bread with ragi.

The benefit of ragi was unknown to me until I made this bread.  Ragi is rich in calcium. Millet or Ragi as commonly known is regularly used in the South Kitchens.  It’s in fact the staple diet in many villages across South India.  People down South draw their strength heavily through consumption of Ragi.    Every experiment lets you to introduce to many new things.
