Kambu Idly-Dosai [Kambu-Pearl Millet]



Kambu / Pearl Millet is a healthy millet which provides healthy nutrients to our body. I used to add pearl millets in our diet once in a two weeks by making khool / kanji for weekend breakfast OR Idly-Dosai.Practising the intake of millets to our kids,makes them healthier and develops their immune system.I packed this as mini kambu idly / coin kambu dosai to Gautham's tiffin box with his fav side dish.

Here,am not getting the pearl millet flour in stores,so i used to buy whole grain pearl millet.Kambu idly-dosa batter is very easy to prepare like our normal idly-dosai batter.I prepare this kambu batter and used it for our breakfast.First day i prepare idly OR paniyaram and the second day dosai.Here,am using mixie for my batter grinding,it gives me best results till now.These proportions are very less in quantity,so you can use mixie for grinding the batter.You can also make kambu paniyaram with this batter.
