Baked Ragi Chakli

Chakli is a jar snack that evokes pleasant memories of vacations spent with cousins or friends at grandma’s place raiding the many snack jars in the pantry. Over time, many of us have almost given up on these simple pleasures due to health concerns. Here is a healthy baked version of your favourite munchie- Baked Ragi Chakli

Ragi is rich in fibre minerals and amino acids which make it a good choice for diabetics. It also has more polyphenols than the commonly used grains like rice, wheat, and corn which help control blood sugar levels. Due to its high fibre and protein content, Ragi is helpful for feeling full for a long time thus helps in weight management. Ragi is one of the few rich sources of calcium, apart from dairy products, which helps strengthen bones and teeth. The iron content in Ragi boosts haemoglobin levels, which especially helps people with anaemia. Sprouted Ragi releases Vitamin C which helps your body absorb haemoglobin too.
