How to make Foxtail Millet Idli Recipe- Healthy Indian Diabetic Idli Recipe

  1. To begin making the Foxtail Millet Idli Recipe, we will wash and soak the millets and urad dal with enough water overnight or keep soaked for at least 8 hours.

  2. To make the batter, drain the soaked millets and urad dal and add this millet-dal combination into a mixer-jar and grind into a smooth batter using very little water. 

  3. We are looking for a dropping consistency batter like that of an idli batter. 

  4. You can make regular sized idlis or also use the mini idli stand. 

  5. Prepare the idli steamer with a little water in the bottom. Place the filled ragi idli racks in the steamer. Place the steamer on high heat and steam the idli’s for 10 minutes.

  6. After 10 minutes of steaming, turn off the heat. Open the steamer and insert a knife or a pick to test whether the idli's are cooked. If nothing sticks then the idlis are perfectly steamed.

  7. Now you can remove the millet idli from the steamer. Have a small bowl filled with water. Dip a spoon in the water and then scoop the ragi idli out starting from the edges. Dipping the spoon in water helps in the easy removal of idli from the plates.

  8. The wholesome homemade pillow-soft foxtail millet idli is now ready to be served. 

  9. Serve the Foxtail Millet Mini Idli Recipe along with Thakkali Vengayam Sambarchutney to enjoy your morning breakfast.
