Kambu/Pearl Millet Idli

I didnt forget to pick few packets of whole grains like pearl millet,ragi,wheat berries and few more grains from India, now its time to use them in our daily menu...I was planning to make some ragi idli for our today's dinner but finally when i saw these tiny pearl millet, i couldnt stop myself to try them as this super spongy healthy idlis, this idli goes for fermentation and serve them with any sort of spicy chutneys, am damn sure that you will definitely have a filling,nutritious and healthy dinner or breakfast...Definitely a wonderful dish to enjoy without any hesitation and suits prefectly for everyone, yep even my lil one enjoyed having this idli with spicy garlic chutney and we loved it...



1cup Pearl millet/Kambu
1cup Idli rice
1/2cup Whole urad dal(deskinned)
1/2tsp Fenugreek seeds
Salt

Wash and soak the pearl millet,idli rice and urad dal with fenugreek seeds separately for 4hours..Grind as a bit coarse paste, add enough salt and keep overnite for fermentation...Next day give a stir and pour enough fermented idly batter to the greased idly plates and steam cook them in idly cooker for 10-15minutes..

Serve this spongy idlis with spicy chutneys..

Priya , Ur millet idly idea is very nice, kambu can be made a s adai also whn soaked along with black urad, green gram, toor , chanadal and very little idly rice, have u ever tried sama idly? it is called sanwa millet or bhagar.Proportion 2.5 cups of sanwa and 1 cup of utad, the sanwa must be soaked in hot water and urad in normal water, the batter will look exactly like idly batter and can be made into fine idly and dosa without change in taste, pl try
