This is a combination of Dehusked Green Gram and Proso millet made into Dosa or Idli! Millets are diabetic friendly as they are rich in fiber. These days millets have become very popular. I do use them in my everyday cooking but also use Rice. Proso millet is called Baragu in Kannada, Panivaragu in Tamil Variga in Telugu and Chena in Hindi. Here I have used Proso Millet you can use any other millet or you can use Rice instead.
I have used dehusked split Green gram, which is good for health than the Yellow moong dal which does not contain any husk and Green Gram is also rich in proteins Proso Millet contains per 100g (Protein 12.5g Fat 2.9g Fiber 2.2g Minerals 1.9g Iron 0.8g Calcium 14g Calories 356g).
I use millets in moderation and also combine them, as consuming only millets gives me tummy aches and the whole day I suffer. So, I usually combine them with other ingredients to make it better for me to digest it. when you start using millets use them in little quantities to see how you are able to digest it.
Millets are known as Siridhanya! in Kannada. They can be substituted instead of rice and used in recipes wherein we make rice dishes. Wash them thoroughly and are a bit heavy in the stomach. Millets are Gluten free and useful for people suffering from wheat allergies.
My father is diabetic, Last time when I was in India I made these for him, he was so happy he liked the dosas better than the Idlis as they were so crispy and I was so happy.
Try out and tell me if you liked it.
