Foxtail Millet/Thinai Dal Bath

Sorry guys,i know am posting since few days many dishes prepared with foxtail millet, its such a miracle grain i couldnt keep myself away from it. Here is one of our recent favourite, i prepared this comforting food yesterday for our lunch and this tastes marvellous when served simply with a spicy potato fry and fried chicken wings.

Personally i loved this fantastic healthy dal bath with papads,definitely a healthy and fantastic twist to usual rice-dal bath. This super healthy dal bath takes hardly less than half an hour to get ready as i cooked them through pressure cooking. A quick,delicious, comforting and a super satisfying meal to enjoy without any guilt.Sending this healthy dish to CWS- Rye or Millet guest hosted by Simona..




1cup Foxtail millet
1/2cup Toor dal
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Lemon juice
4cups Mixed Veggies(any veggies of ur choice)
1tbsp Sambar powder

Few curry leaves
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
1tsp Ghee+oil
1tsp Mustard seeds& urad dal
Few cashewnuts
Few curryleaves
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
Salt

Wash and soak the foxtail millet and dal together for 15minutes in three cups of water and keep aside.

Heat enough oil in a pressure cooker, add the veggies and cook for few minutes.

Add now the soaked millet and dal with turmeric powder,sambar powder,salt to the cooking veggies along with their soaked water,close the cooker with the lid and pressure cook upto 3 whistles.

Meanwhile heat the ghee or oil in a pan, let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal and asafoetida powder, add the cashews and curry leaves, fry for few minutes.

Beautiful. And it looks like several of us who used millet to participate in the event fell in love with this grain: fantastic. Thank you so much for your contributions and for allowing me to host your lovely event.
