Ragi is one of the most popular millets in the world, especially in South India and is also called as Keppai in tamil. It's rich in various minerals such as Calcium, Iron and many more. Ragi is a very good source for you protein too. Ragi is in the top in its list for antioxidant activity. It also contains some Essential Amino Acids (EAA) needed for your body to function well.
