Ragi Upma |Finger Millet Upma

Ragi Upma is very healthy  breakfast recipe which is low in cholestrol as well as fat. My mom always tells me to consume ragi for at-least once in a week as it has a higher rate of fiber and makes your tummy full with less calorie.Include ragi upma for breakfast or dinner with spicy chutney which makes the dish tastier.
