FINGER MILLET BREAD (RAGI/KURAKKAN BREAD)


Ragi,finger millet,kurakkan( Sinhala ) is a

healthy bread . It was not an easy and good

bake when I did for the first time . The humour

part of the result was that ,even my dog ran

away when I offered him a bite ,it was so hard

and not edible 🤣.Why ?I made it with plain

ragi flour .

Today,I found a recipe with a mixture of wheat

flour and millet flour and the texture and taste

was good .The only change I made was to add

basil leaves and nuts as a topping.

“Failure,is part of Success,not the opposite

( quote ).

I never share recipes ,without achieving a good

result !
