Ha-looo! Very healthy and diabetic friendly foxtail millet dosa with potato masala, specially for you friends.
I have some delicious things going on right here in the food department because the ground work for my 5-week vacation in India have geared up. The food that has to appear in the blog during vacationing have been planned and cooking is in progress. Meanwhile photo editing, collages and write up are taken care every day working an extra hour off the schedule.
I like the amazing concept as to any cereal or grain can be made in to certain super flexible recipes. Super flexible recipes in my food life probably happen to be these South Indian staples like dosa, idli, rotti or stuff like that. The cereal that I am talking to is foxtail millet which is one of the age-old grain that has been in the NEWS recently because of the health benefits. Foxtail millet dosa has become so very common breakfast at my home now that I don’t even notice any taste difference.
The porous texture, softness and the taste resemble very much like plain dosa with bonus health benefits of millet. Which is why I have become a big fan of these cute little cereals. You can easily replace rice with millets in all the possible recipes to know your favorite way of eating them. I have explored millet idli, pongal, bisi bele bath, pulao, rotti and even shevige which deserve to be on this blog space as separate recipes.
More or less all millets have same look, feel and taste when cooked, but I found this foxtail millet to be harder than others. Cooking them requires little extra water and time too. Adopting to millet life style doesn’t force you compromise the taste but assures plenty of health advantage.
