Little Millets ( Cheru Dhanyams)

I went to India and found various cheru dhanyams used by my cousin. I liked it very much. You can make anything whatever you make with rice.

Little Millets

1. Samai.( Little Millet)...This tiny grain is gluten free  and packed with minerals and vitamins.

                                                             



2. Thinai (Foxtail Millet).It is known for its low Glycemics index gradual increase  in blood sugar after food intake when compared to rice. Natural source of Protein and Iron
                                                                          All millets are high in fiber, minerals, vitamins,iron, magnesium, pottassium etc.

4.Kuthiravali ( Barnyard Millet)


Kanji...Take all four millet 2 tsp each wash and add 2 times water  cook them.
