Eggless Ragi Chocolate Cake

A great hit at home, overloaded with nutrition deliciousness this dessert recipe is perfect to put a smile on your picky eater’s face right after dinner. And that too without any mom guilt.

Ragi is a perfect nutty and rich, healthy substitute for white flour. This wonderful native millet is rich in fibre and a great source of protein, iron and calcium. And it makes the perfect base for a moist, brown cake slice.


    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/2 cup ragi flour (finger millet flour)
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
