SORGHUM/JOWAR SOOJI/JOLADA TARI IDLY

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, DIABETIC FRIENDLY RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

Yet another gluten free, diabetic friendly Idly recipe using the Sorghum millet semolina. I have used Sorghum sooji/Jowar/Jola tari/ with black gram lentil/Urad dal along with fenugreek seeds to make Idly. It turned out soft and had the same texture like rice idly and was too yummy. Earlier I had tried making Upma, rotti (thalipeeth) using sorghum semolina and it was a hit at my place, so thought of trying idly  as well. Next recipe in the list is sorghum semolina halwa or sheera. Being one of the wonder millets, sorghum is a power house of nutrients, it is rich in vitamins and minerals, contains high level of calcium, magnesium, Iron, copper and has significant amount of dietary fiber.  It is said that the bran layer of the sorghum grains contains important anti oxidants which helps in prevention of some types of cancer, it is good for the people with diabetes, Celiac disease (severe allergy to gluten), bone health, energy levels etc. I have served it with coconut chutney.
