Foxtail Millet or Navane is rich in Vitamin B1, Iron and is helpful in diabetes too. As I have included this in my diet, I thought of experimenting a no rice idli flour using Navane and it turned out fantastic – soft and tasty too.

Here is my recipe:

Ingredients:

2 cups Navane (try and use the unpolished variant)

3/4 cup Urad Dal

2 tbsp Tuvar dal

2 tbsp Moong dal

2 tsp fenugreek seeds

Salt, to taste

Method:

Wash all the ingredients together at least three times.

Soak overnight.

In the morning, grind together till the mixture is smooth.

remove and let it stand for 3 hours.

Then add salt and make idli’s or dosa.

P.S. You can add vegetables to your idlis for more benefits – grated carrots, boiled peas and even soaked channa dal.
