ABOUT Savory Ragi Malt RECIPE

This is a typical recipie of coastal regions of Maharashtra and consumed during summer. It has the wholesome goodness of ragi with buttermilk and mildly flavoured with ginger and garlic. I have added mint and coriander also to this to make it a perfect coolant on a sunny day.
