Ragi rotti is one of the most popular food of Karnataka. It is one of the mandatory dishes savoured by rural population of the state. Ragi is rich with proteins and fiber which gives energy when consumed.

Ragi rotti tastes best when it is relished with peanut chutney. It is also accompanied by green chillies and coconut especially in the areas of a village. This makes a rich breakfast that keeps one filled with zeal and energy.

Ragi rotti is prepared by combining the ragi flour with onions, chillies and other ingredients. It is then flattened using hands and fried well on the tawa. The soft and thin dark-coloured rotti invites people to taste it.
