Thinai godhumai rava dosa (No Onion recipe)

Millets are healthy alternative for polished white Rice. Foxtail millet( Thinai/Thenai-Tamil, Korra-Telugu, Navane-Kannada, Kangni-Hindi, Thina-Malayalam) one of the millet variety which is rich in dietary fibre, protein and low in fat. Also this millet is highly recommended to those people having diabetes as it releases glucose steadily.

Earlier this was one among the staple food, when Rice started dominating these millets (siruthaniyangal) slowly started losing its importance.

Do you know why its name is called FOXTAIL MILLET????????? because the seed part of this crop is dense and hairy and looks like a tail of a fox. Interesting isnt it??? Another interesting fact is that this food crop grows fast in a short period.
