There are many varieties of millet and today let’s take a look at a recipe prepared with little millet/ samai (in tamil), kutki (in hindi)but before that its health benefits.  Little millet like any other millet is rich in protein, fiber, acts as antioxidants and combats with diabetes. In this recipe I have store bought  little millet flour but you could use homemade as well by washing, soaking, drying and then grinding the little millet to flour which will surely taste more yummy and fresh.
