The state of Karnataka is the largest producer of ragi in India.  This is one of the most nutritious food and one of the easy one to digest. It is rich in calcium and protein and also have good amount of iron and other minerals. It is low in fat most of which are unsaturated fats.  It is rich in protein and fiber.

Ragi is a great source of iron making it beneficial for individuals with low hemoglobin levels.  Ragi is helpful for development of bones in children.  It is also a diabetic food as they contain higher amounts of fiber over other cereals and millets. Diets based on whole finger millet have a lower glycemic response i.e. lower ability to increase blood sugar level.  It helps in lowering the cholesterol levels.

 

Ragi is normally consumed in the form of flour-based foods such as roti (unleavened pancake), mudde(stiff porridge/dumpling) and ambli (thin porridge).  Ragi can be used to make porridge, upma, cakes, and biscuits. Ragi flour is used to make various Indian preparations like dosas, idlis and ladoos.  One famous and tasty recipe of Karnataka is Ragi Malt or Hurihittu.

Bread is a staple food prepared from a dough of flour and water, usually by baking.  It is made from wheat-flour dough that is cultured with yeast, allowed to rise, and finally baked in an oven. Owing to its high levels of gluten (which give the dough sponginess and elasticity), common wheat (also known as bread wheat) is the most common grain used for the preparation of bread.
Besan Bread Toast can be prepared with plain bread or whole wheat bread.
