Millets in our diet plan are very important, so to keep it interesting and tasty we make different recipes with them like upma, dosa, kheer, and khichdi. Recipes with millets are easy to make, and of course tasty and healthy too.
They are rich in proteins, carbohydrates and easily digestible. This millet used as a substitute for rice. It helps in keeping the blood sugar under control.
