LITTLE MILLET/SAAME AKKI/SAMAK CHAWAL POTATO BATH

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, MILLETS PREPARATIONS on by : Divya Suresh

I just tried making Potato bath/Aloo bath using little millet/saame akki/samak chawal, in the same way, like how I make Potato bath using semolina. And the result is awesome !! And what I found is a simple and easy method of making a delicious one pot meal. It can be served with any raita or chutney of your choice or can be eaten as such.

We all know about the health benefits of including millets in our diet. Luckily we get almost all the millets here in Gurgaon. It has got high content of nutrients, very high B Vitamin content, as well as Calcium. Iron, Potassium, Zinc, Magnesium along with being a healthy source of essential fats in the body. Diabetic people can also eat this, but if we replace potato with some other diabetic friendly vegetable (beans,broccoli, spinach etc) then it will become more suitable for them.
