For those of you on the GFCF diet, millets are definitely a healthier way to go. Especially the health conscious, senior citizens vouch for the goodness of millets. It is a healthier option compared to rice and wheat. Some of them are Finger millet (ragi), little millet (sama in Kannada, koda bagar in Hindi), jowar (sorghum), pearl millet (sajje in kannada, Bajra in hindi, kambu in Tamil), foxtail millet (tenai in Tamil, Navene in Kannada). The only so called hitch is all these flours is ,they need to be mixed with hot water, as they do not have gluten as a binding agent. So, here some of the blogs that I came across while looking for millet recipes http://millets.wordpress.com/ .
This blog http://thisissucksman.blogspot.com/2009/03/bajra-roti-simple-and-easy.html shows you the way to make bajra rotis. Well illustrated with photos. And as I had mentioned in one of my earlier post I tried rotis with jowar flour and they come out beautifully. I also made aloo parathas and puris with them. I personally feel a slightly tangy curry offsets the bland flavor of the jowar flour. And yes they must be eaten hot. Next on my to- try recipe list is Sama kichidi.
