It’s Navratri and time to fast. Fasting helps detox if done correctly. I have often observed that our culture and festivals are all designed to keep us healthy and happy.

Navratri has its own fervor and is celebrated with great joy. This Navratri is a little different with we all not able to move out and play garba and dandiya, this should not dampen our spirits.

As we celebrate it with online celebration, we bring to you healthy recipes for Navratri.

Keep a watch on this space for healthy recipes.

I love idlis and feel that they work best as snacks or dinner.
So, a variant to the regular idlis presenting you the Barnyard millet Idlis.
They turn out so finger licking good that even kids would want to eat them.

Barnyard millet (Samo, Vrat ke chawal): 1 cup
Dahi: ½ cup
Dudhi: 4 tsp
Sendha namak: to taste.
Oil /ghee: to grease the moulds.
Ginger-chilly paste: 1 tbsp.
Eno: 1/2 tsp just enough to raise the batter

Soak the barnyard millet in enough water for 2 hours. Drain.
Mix all ingredients (except eno), in a food processor and grind.
Allow it to stand for ½ hour. The consistency of the batter should be like normal idli batter.
Add the eno whisk well. Grease the idli moulds and pour the batter into the moulds.
Steam in the steamer. Allow it to cool and remove them from the moulds.
Serve with Green chutney or coconut chutney.
