Millet Kheer Recipe with step by step instructions.తెలుగు వెర్షన్.
After breaking my keto diet I started using Millets in my regular cooking. now it became our staple food. we replaced white rice with millet rice and brown rice. 1/2 cup of millets serves 2 moderate eaters. millets have medium Glycemic Index. i.e they have a low glycemic index when compared to rice and wheat. so we started using them to maintain the same weight. and it’s working actually :). But millets are a little pricey than the rice. 500 grams organic millets pack is about 60 to 80 rupees.
I used Foxtail Millets for this recipe. you can use any millets like Kodo Millets, Barn Yard Millets, Proso Millets or little Millets. all these millets have different nutritional values and health benefits. we have been using all these millets from the past 6 months. and feeling really good.
so I suggest you to replace tapioca, rice, and vermicelli for making kheer. millet porridge tastes really good. I hope you try and enjoy this healthy and nutritious Millets Porridge Recipe. watch the video below for the detailed view.
