Foxtail-Millet-Rava Upma anyone? Imagine the smell of roasted millet rava, aromatic spices and fresh vegetables waft through the house. Yummy!
Hungry already? We sure are.
Upma is a usual fare in many South-Indian households. It is typically made using rava and vegetables shallow-fried in oil because of which it is unhealthy. Two examples of everyday kitchen ingredients that make ”home food” as unhealthy as the greasy fast-food are wheat-rava and oil.
Rava is a refined wheat product and oil, a processed food. How do we enjoy this delicious staple while also being healthy?
We show how.
Upma without the wheat-rava or oil, yet super yummy. Just like our Foxtail-Millet-Rava Upma.
Switching to millet-rava solves one part of the problem because millet rava is not refined. You can either buy them in stores or get the whole millet coarsely ground. Foxtail-Millet-Rava Upma is one of the many types of millet upmas you can make in addition to many others.
Foxtail Millet, Navane, Koralu, Kangni, or Thinai, was a staple cereal in India some years ago. In addition, this variety of millet is rich in dietary fibre, iron, calcium, magnesium and protein.
