What are Millets?
Millets include jowar (great millet), ragi (finger millet), korra (foxtail millet), arke (kodo millet) and sama (little millet).
All these are available in the form of rice (example: foxtail millet rice), rawa (example: jowar and bajra rawa) and flour forms in supermarkets in addition to jowar pastas or ragi string hoppers.
These may look coarse and unappealing for an eye that’s accustomed to mill polished white rice, but once you master the art of cooking these well, the health benefits are for you to enjoy.
Why Millets? <SECRETS of healthy life DISCLOSED>
Traditional Indian Food that grows in all season. These can grow ONLY ORGANIC. No fertilizers help.
Highest Fiber content. Easy to digest.
Very Cheap indeed. A kilogram of any costly millet will cost you less than Rs. 100
Importantly best suitable for diabetic people and easy digestive for kids.
Is that tough to cook or replace our daily food?
Certainly not. Just replace rice with millet rice, even for idly measure. (3 cups idly rice, 1 cup millet grain soaked, as usual 1 cup urad dal) . For Chapatis or rotis, very well multi grain goes. No taste difference too. Even my fuzzy queen eats it without complaining.
Try with Porridge (sweet or salt), Payasam, Halwa, cakes, biscuits, upma, Kichadi etc
