Ragi Cinnamon Roll

Ragi flour, is it something new? No, actually it is not something new. Just that we don't use it very often. Ragi flour is also called as red millet or finger millet. It's about the size of the millet but in different colours, something like buckwheat flour. By the way, do you know that buckwheat is not a wheat but it's actually fruit seeds! Ragi flour is gluten-free too and it's perfect for celiac patients.

And here's the recipe.

Ingredients :
400gm Spelt flour/ATTA flour
200gm ragi flour
2 tbsp bran flakes
2 tspn yeast
2 tbsp sugar
1 tspn salt
50gm butter, cubed
250ml lukewarm water

#cinnamon mixture : 2/3 cup brown sugar + 1-1/2 tbsp cinnamon powder

Method :
(1) combine all dry ingredients into a big bowl.
(2) slowly stir in water and mix to form a soft dough.
(3) add in butter and knead till well combined and smooth.
(4) keep dough covered and set aside for an hour or untill double in size.

(6) once it's ready, place dough to a slightly floured working table.
(7) punch and knead to release air from dough.
(8) now, roll dough out flat into a rectangle shape about 10x14".
(9) spread on melted butter evenly and follow by cinnamon mixture.
(10) roll the dough into swiss roll and divide into 12 portion.
(11) arrange dough onto well coated pan and let to rest for 20 mins.
(12) then bake at preheated oven 220'C for about 20-25 ins or untill brown.

Making bread by using mixed flour is to reduce the intake of less gluten product which is good for our digestion system. Don't ever expect to have very very soft and fluffy bread from either buckwheat or ragi flour because they are both gluten-free. But with the help of spelt flour or ATTA flour should works better in the rising part. Enjoy the healthy bread to have a healthy heart!

  10. Not something I would normalky have in my pantry, but sure would love to try!

  11. Kristy, my cup-o-joe looks lonely without a companion! This cinnamon roll would go perfect with it... ;-)

  12. does the ragi flour give any particular taste?

  13. Looks so soft, wish can have one for my breakfast. I wonder whether it is the same ragi flour that I got it from Indian store?

  14. Never heard of Ragi flour but when you say red millet, I think I can better associate it :)

  15. I love that you used something other than white flour - they look amazing!

  16. I've never heard of this flour. I tend to stick with the usual as my hubs is not a huge fan of "weird" flour (to him) :P

  25. Zoe : try to allow more prooving time for the dough. Common flour is lighter compare to spelt & atta or whole wheat. I'm sure it will works great.

  30. Cinnamon rolls with milk.. It tastes so good :)

  31. Hi Kisty

    I wud like to try ur Ragi Cinnamon Roll recipe as I have 2 kgs of the ATTA flour which I bought not knowing it was not the normal plain flour. Now I do not know what to do with it.

    Can I omit the Ragi flour and if yes, what do I substitute in place of the Ragi flour to combine with the ATTA flour?

    Thanks and with blessings

  32. Hi Pris,
    Thanks for stopping by. Yes to your question. You can replace the ragi flour with ATTA flour. The texture of the bread will be lighter unlike ragi which is dense & heavy but less gluten. Ragi is more or less like rice. All the best to you & good luck.

  33. Thanks very much Kisty for ur response. That means I will use total 600g ATTA flour, right?

    If yes, I will proceed to try out ur Cinnamon rolls recipe quite soon and let u know the result.
