What millet is your favorite? I am crazy for ragi or finger millet. Rather, I am addicted to sprouted roasted ragi. It is full of good nutrition. I love foxtail millet at number 2. I like its nutty flavor. If you are looking for more foxtail millet recipes, try out the millet salad with chickpeas that I shared a few days back. It's full of nutrition and all the good things. It is so delicious as well. Then comes little millet, proso millet, kodo millet, and of course, pearl millet. Bajra requires a little getting used to due to its strong flavor profile. I sprout pearl millet, dry the sprouts, and then powder them to make bajra atta at home.
Are millets for weight loss diet good? Well, they are deficient in calories. What makes you obese in most cases is an overload of calories. The excess calories tend to deposit in your body as fat. This is what makes you obese. I will share more healthy recipes Indian soon. Please stay tuned. Meanwhile, for more millet recipes, check this. Little millet salad or upma recipe for vrat:

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
