Haraka /Araka /Kodo Millet Methi Dosa

Harka/Arka /Kodo Millet is one of the millet family grain. I have tried varieties of recipes with almost all the millet grains. I have tried my favourite Menthy / Fenugrik dosa and it was fluffy, soft and yummy.

Millets have gain the stand once again and we all know the importance of these millets in our diets. It is said that even in Ancient period people used to grow and use millets and they were the source of food.
I have been using the millet since I got to know they are energetic, gluten free, fiber rich and slow in digestion. Not only these points there are so many reasons why you should use millet  in your daily diet.

They help in reducing the obesity and rich in antioxidants.
