How is murmura prepared? 

As its name suggests, murmura is made from rice. Rice grain is roasted until it puffs. Will post a video if anyone is interested in making murmura at home from scratch.

Is murmura good for weight loss? 

Well, since it is made from rice and comprises fiber and complex carbs, you tend to feel fuller quickly. So it might be a good addition to your weight loss regime since after snacking on air fryer roasted murmura, you may not feel the need to eat anything further. AVOID DRINKING WATER after murmura or puffed rice or rice flakes (poha).

But overeating or guilty eating can result in weight gain, obesity, and diabetes. Though there are fewer murmura calories, it has a high glycemic index, which might cause blood sugar spikes in people with diabetes, if not eaten in moderation.

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
