    What a fantastic recipe. Your recipe is both mouth-watering and without the guilt of eating unhealthy diet. Ragi is one of the most healthy diets out there which is not well known to many people. I was no exception few years back when the doctor suggested to try ragi for my aunt who was staying with us. My Aunt loved Ragi Roti and since I have had it, I fell in love with it. Then I realised the value of ragi by knowing about its nutrition detailed in this site. Since then there is no turning back.

    I am 3 month pregnant now and I have developed sweet tooth and now want to prepare something which is sweet and out of ragi. I searched for google and volla, here is your article. I am very much thankful for your recipe and will definitely going to try this in the coming weekend. Given how ignorant people are about Ragi, I have taken it on me to spread the nutritional value of Ragi (this article is the most comprehensive I have found). Please put this somewhere in your article so that people know the value of it.

    Thanks a million Sangeeta, both from me and my baby :)

    God bless.

    Cheers

    What will happen if you were to take 1 cup of Ragi flour and 1/2 cup of all purpose flour? Just wondering if you have tried it and if you have what difference do you see in the texture?

    @Vrishali, I did try the same ratio and made muffins. It gives slightly heavier bake, as these millet are almost gluten free. All purpose flour gives a good texture and lightness to the recipe.

    Thank you, but too much cinnamon, ruined the chocolate taste. Cinnamon should be less or vanilla instead.
