To prepare sprouted ragi flour. Clean and soak it for half an hour. Tie it in a Muslim cloth and keep in warm place overnight or until the sprouts are out. Then dry it under the sun for half hour covered with a cloth. Than roast it for 2 mins, let it cool and grind it

Better to prepare at home. v have to soak ragi in water whole night,then strain the water. later let them sprouted by tighing them in a cloth. after sprouting let them air dry n then add to blender to make fine powder. sprouted ragi powder is easily digestible for babies
