Foxtail Millet & Sweet Corn Upma

Since i heard lot about the nutritious value of foxtail millet, i couldnt stop myself to get them from organic stores. I prepared recently this healthy,nutritious,super filling and satisfying upma with sweet corn kernels and foxtail millet. An excellent food to enjoy without any guilt which gets ready very quickly if you cook your foxtail millet through pressure cooker apart from it, this dish goes for usual spices.

You can enjoy this healthy upma even without any side dish eventhough i loved it with  Urad dal chutney. This foxtail millet and sweet corn upma is my third day post of blogging marathon under the theme 'Upmas' i choosed for this second week of blogging marathon,check out the other marathoners running this 21st edition of blogging marathon here.

  31. Can i make this with any millet seed. I get a organic millet seed in the store but it is not foxtail.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Dr R, u can replace it with quinoa, any millet which gets cooked prefectly can be used in this dish, if they turns mushy u cant make this dish, so please use the millet thats suits for making this dish.
