Finger millet / nachni has a very high protein content, its rich in source of minerals, it has anti – microbial properties. Research also says it has anti – cancer potential. It helps to reduce bad cholesterol and keeps you young.

When i got to know so many benefits about Finger millet / nachni i searched for the best recipe i can make. mostly people make Ragi malt,  dosa or  ladoo. As thinking something different i planed to make some raw tangy dish of ragi as i liked it raw taste very much.

Ragi dosa recipe is one of very famous dish but i thought why not to make plain dosa and have yummy chutney. so using some taste sense i tried this chutney and it came so well that my all family members where tempting to have this wonderful chutney 😀
