Millets Dosa/ Idly Batter

Hi All,

It’s a healthy recipe which you will consume every day without any extra effort. Just prepare batter and set aside and it’s will work wonders on your body.

So, What Is Millet?

Millet may not be the most common type of seed crop that you’re expecting on your table, but in fact, this group of variable small-seeded grasses is cultivated throughout the world, both for livestock feed and human consumption. It is mainly grown in developing countries, but its ability to grow in relatively harsh, arid, and dry environments makes it an ideal crop for many countries.

India cultivates over 8 million tons of these grains every year, followed by Africa and China. Millet can be used as a traditional cereal, and can also be used in porridge, snacks, and other types of bread, as it is very high in starch, like other grains. It is also a very good source of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds that can significantly boost human health in various ways.

So I get this on shop and it can be bought as bulk from available rice shops

Like wise you can use many…kodo millet and foxtail Millets.


Some may be allergiec to Millets consumption if they have thyroid related issues. Consult before you consume.
