SPROUTED RAGI AND OATS CUTLETS

Raagi i.e. Finger Millet is highly nutritious and also is said to have a cooling effect on our body. In the Indian cuisine, millets have been always included in some form or the other.

Bhaakari, khichdi, dosas, parathas, kheer, thaalipeeth,etc. are some dishes made using different millets. Oats is one cereal which is equally nutritious as millets. Again we all know, that sprouting increases the nutritional value of the particular food item.

In this recipe, I have combined sprouted raagi with some oats and sweet potato, alongwith green peas and some spices to make a delicious cutlet. Though I have ground some of the raagi and kept the remaining as it is, you can surely opt to grind all of it!

An artist by nature, I love painting, travelling to different places and photographing nature, gardening, crochet, reading, etc. It's my nature to give my best to anything and everything I do. From a person who could cook very few dishes..... I have converted myself to a person who now can cook varied dishes! I like perfection in all my work. Reading a lot of recipes, watching different famous chefs' cooking shows on television and observing their methods, techniques and tips very closely and studiously ....is what has made me a very good cook today. Though there are numerous recipes I haven't tried my hand at..... there are many other in which I have gained exerpertise only by trial and error! I still watch all interesting cookery shows on TV to gain more knowledge on cooking techniques of other cultures from here and abroad!! Nowadays, I have started adding healthy twists to my dishes as and when I can without compromising on their original taste. Started this blog to share a few recipes of mine with all other cooking enthusiasts! Happy cooking to all! 😃
