Almost a year ago, as a beginner to baking, I was searching for few western recipes using ragi. I came to know about few recipes and bookmarked them. I have prepared and posted one recipe(Ragi cookies) here already from Sanjeetha’s site. The other one is from Ayeesha’s site which are nothing but these muffins.
Banana and walnut from this muffins add extra taste and you won’t feel that ragi is added to these muffins. I am planning to prepare these muffins again and this time, I am planning to add more walnuts for extra crunch and add an extra tablespoon of milk for extra moist.
