    Ragi is Indian red millet right? You know...you can get the white millet easily and cheaply in USA both in grain or in flour. I personally love that millet cooked in rice cooker. You can get it in health food stores and some large grocery stores. Its one of the cheapest grains to buy.

    You can get Ragi flour easily in any Indian Grocery stores or Super market/health food stores. Meanwhile Whole ragi, i have seen it in Edision NJ sold in bulk.... you can try there.
