Ragi Chocolate Cake Recipe

Ragi chocolate cake is made using finger millet flour or ragi flour and whole wheat flour to give a healthier cake alternative. The ragi chocolate cake recipe is egg-less and has two variations. You can use oil & yogurt or you can use condensed milk. I am using whole wheat instead of refined flour and adding some ragi flour to it.
