Foxtail Millet & Mixed Dals Dumplings /Thinai Paruppu Paniyaram

Am trying to reduce adding rice in most of my dishes especially when it comes to our dinner dishes like dosas or pongal. Yep nowadays am making pongal or non fermentation dosas with healthy grains like different millets,oats and cracked wheat. Trust me, we dont miss the rice in our dishes. Few days back, i tried making an interesting dumpling with super healthy foxtail millet aka thinai with mixed dals. This dumplings are just amazing with many nutritional value, serve simply with a shallot chutney makes a wonderful dinner too.

This dumpling batter goes for easy preparation and no fermentation is needed. Just leave the batter in room temperature for an hour and make your dumplings with your paniyaram pan. You can have them either for snacks or for dinner if you dont feel like making your dinner with other stuffs. You can feed easily everyone at home with millets without their knowledge as some wont like to have foods prepared with millets.Sending to my own event CWS-Urad Dal guest hosted by Sowmya of Nivedhanam and to my event Healthy Diet-Diabetic Friendly Recipes.
