We all know the health benefit of millets and i no need to repeat it again some it are it is rich in fibre,low in carbohydrates and full of nutrients.do intake millets atleast a meal a day.We can make almost all south Indian breakfast recipes with it and this one string hoppers/ idiyaappam is my kids favourite.
- Thinnai/ foxtail millet flour- 1 cup( i used store brought)
- Rice flour-1\2 cup
- salt-to taste
- hot water- as needed
- oil- 1 tbsp
1.Dry roast thinnai flour for a while .then add rice flour salt and oil to it.Boil some water and slowly add to it and form a non sticky dough.
2.Fill the presser with the dough and press it on a idli plate on on mat as i have and steam it in idli pot.
3.When done carefully remove from the plate and do the same for all dough.
Serve hot with any veg or non-veg gravy.
we like to have it with simple red chutney too.
