Varagu Idli | Kodo Millet Idli | Healthy Millets recipe

Varagu Idli is one of the healthy nutritious breakfast recipe which is good for diabetic and hypertensive patients. It is rich in fiber and is also good for people of all ages. Here I have replaced idli rice with Varagu arisi or Kodo Millet. It tastes just like the ordinary idli  but it will give you a feeling of fullness and also stops craving for food. Here the same batter can be used to make both idlis and dosas. Tastes well with Kadalai curry and curry leaves onion chutney.

Ingredients for making Kodo Millets idli         

2 Cups Kodo Millet / Varagu
1/2 cup urad dal
4 tbsps Poha / Aval
1/2 tablespoon Fenugreek seeds
Salt to taste

Method for making Kodo Millets idli    

1. Wash the millets with water 3 times to get rid of impurities and Soak the kodo millets, aval, urad dal together for 3 hours in water. 

2. Drain water and grind millet to a smooth batter by adding very little water. Do not add more water as it may become runny.

3. Add required amount of salt and allow this to stand for 6-8 hours or keep for overnight fermentation.

4. After fermentation store the batter in a refrigerator.

6. Grease the idli plates and steam cook for 10 to 12 minutes.

Kodo Millet Idli is ready.
