“Breakfast on the go” is a latest food trend of younger generation. Which is nothing but eating as we go, like it can be a fruit or fruit based smoothie. It may be today’s craze of youngsters but what I personally prefer is a full, warm sit-down breakfast. Fruits and smoothies just doesn’t go well with me as breakfast. The food that we take in the morning after fasting for 8 night hours should be nutritious, wholesome that can provide energy to kickstart our day. So I make cereal rich food like dosa, idli, chapati kind of stuff. The trendy cereal millets also make my part of breakfast many times. Little millet idiyappam is one among them.
Idiyappam or shavige which is normally prepared using rice can now be made using millets. Since these tiny grains are in vibe these days, making idiyappam using them is a good idea. So last weekend the healthy millets have dominated my food world at home. I chose little millet for this recipe and it perfectly made non-sticky, soft string hoppers. You need to be extra careful when grinding the batter for the same which needs to be little watery than normal dosa batter. Otherwise it can make the idiyappam harder or chewy.
In order to serve little millet idiyappam you can make coconut chutney, sambar or you can even season it with onion and green chillies. Either way it tastes amazingly delicious.
