I have started including millets in my diet. Just a step toward a weightloss diet. Millets are powder packed, They have more and more nutrients and minerals. Some millets are also low in glycemic index. Last week, I went to a supermarket and found some millet flours. I bought pearl millet flour and foxtail millet flour. I actually don't have any idea how to use them. For this week, I opened foxtail millet flour or thinai maavu. I ringed my mom for the recipe. She told she had no idea and I ended up in experimenting something with the flour. I added a little of regular dosa mavu to karaitha thinai maava and added some additional ingredients. When I made the dosas, I never expected that it will be tasty. It was amazing. It was tasty and the flavor was amazing. I gave that to my dad and he also gave me a very nice comment. I just wanted to note down the recipe in my blog for my future reference.
