Diwali is here and all I wanted to make this Diwali is something healthy as well as yummy .There was a pack of sprouted ragi flour in my freezer for quite sometime (I keep my flours in freezer so that it keeps fresh without any insects) and I usually make ragi dosa or ragi cookies with it.I wanted to ragi Laddus for this Diwali as these finger millets are packed with all the nutrients and also they are sprouted to add which is more nutritious and ideal for growing kids .I was curious about the taste but believe me it was more delicious than maa Laddu and my son seeing the colour thought it as chocolate Laddu and enjoyed it a lot.So Happy Diwali guys ! Enjoy your Diwali with these delicious Ragi lLddus.
