Ragi Idli (Kelvaragu Idli)

Ragi which is also know as Finger Millet is a very health food.My hubby love to have these ragi contain food most of the time. My MIL has a different way of preparing them by add some spice mixture. Normally she make dosa using ragi flour but I prefer to make them as iddlies.I wasn't really a great fan of having dosa or iddlies prepare with ragi as the color wasn't appetizing to me since I was a kid. After marriage my MIL made these dosa once in a while and I got used the taste and makes them as often as my hubby wants.
