Homemade Millet Batter

Millet batter

Homemade millet Idli/Dosa batter recipe in mixer – Use any millet – Little , Kodo, Foxtail, Barnyard the ratio for this recipe is the same – 3 cups millet, 1 cup urad dal, 1 cup poha. That is it.

This is my family’s favorite millet recipe and we love it with Sambhar & chutney. Everything feels the same as normal idli made with rice except the colour is more
dull because of the fibre from millets.

Age: Babies older than 7 months can start consuming the soft dosa or idlis  made using homemade millet batter with milk or plain sambhar/ Dal Pani

Some useful tips:

  1. Pick millets that are unpolished. They should not look white, they are either grey, yellow or greenish.
  2. Don’t wash more than 2 times. A lot of vital nutrients will be lost in the washed water
  3. Don’t add too much water while soaking. Add just enough to immerse the grains in water.
  4. Soak for 3-5 hours
  5. Grind the grains in the mixer for just about 1-2 mins. A powerful mixer does a good job to make it a fine batter in 1-2 mins.
  6. Ferment in cooler climates take 8-10 hours, fermenting in summer is completed in 5-6 hours. So watch out carefully. Else batter can get sour.
  7. Use the entire batter within 2 days.
  8. Store the batter in a fridge after its fermented.For more recipes, follow us on Early Foods Blog
