Healthy millet recipes – Vegetarian and Indian millet recipes

Millets are coarse grains that are traditionally grown and consumed in the India for many years. Millets have high nutritional value and are rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, and fibres. Unlike other cereals, millets require little water and ground fertility. Millets are affordable too and so called as  “poor man’s food grain”. 

Millets are a good source of protein, fiber, key vitamins, and minerals. The health benefits of millet include protecting cardiovascular health, preventing the onset of diabetes, helping people achieve and maintain a healthy weight, and managing inflammation in the gut. 

Millets are advised in moderate amounts because excessive consumption can lead to adverse effects as they can cause delayed digestion due to their slow digestibility as they are high in fibre.

There are varieties of millets available in the market. However Foxtail Millet, Finger Millet, Pearl Millet, Buckwheat and Little Millet are the popular ones. Millets like sorghum (jowar), pearl millet (bajra), foxtail millet (kangni), finger millet (ragi) are considered to be the healthiest among all the millets available.
