This is a Text Recipe, not a Video.  Due to commitments on home front and paucity of time it is becoming difficult to make videos of all known recipes.  If I have to make a video only before I’m to share these recipes, it is likely to take considerable time. Meanwhile there is also an urge to share these recipes for the benefit of my viewers. These recipes are prepared, perfected and tasted at home. Hence they too carry the same commitment and conviction as in videos, while I share them with you. As and when these text recipes are converted into videos, the above photograph would be replaced with its video. Enjoy!!!

    Take foxtail millets into a bowl and wash well. Add measured water to millets and place bowl in pressure cooker. After first whistle, cook millets on low flame for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, switch off flame and allow pressure cooker to cool. Remove bowl from pressure cooker and spread the cooked millets in a wide plate.

    Wash green chilies and ginger and coarsely grind them using a mixer grinder. Wash curry leaves.

    Thaw frozen peas and wash. Wash and peel carrots and dice them into cubes.

    Cut cashew nuts into small pieces.

    Wash coriander leaves and chop them.


    Take peas and carrot pieces into a microwave safe bowl and add water. Place the vegetables bowl in microwave oven and cover bowl partially. Cook vegetables on high flame for 7 minutes and allow 3 minutes standing time before removing bowl from microwave oven. Add the cooked vegetables to the cooked millets in the wide plate. Take curd and whisk till smooth. Add the curd to millets mixture and mix well--add salt and mix again.

In the remaining oil add fenugreek seeds and black gram and fry stirring till they start changing color. Then add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and fry stirring till they splutter. Add asafetida and curry leaves and mix. Add ginger-chili paste and fry stirring till chilies turn crisp. Then add the prepared seasoning to the curd mixture and mix well.

    Points To Observe:

    Korra Biyyam (Foxtail Millet) is a staple diet of rural people. After getting recognized as diabetic food this millet became popular even in urban areas. This millet is rich in dietary fiber and minerals such as copper and iron, protein and low in fat. Unlike rice, foxtail millet releases glucose steadily without affecting the metabolism of the body.

     For one cup of millet take two cups of water when making daddojanam. If making pulao types with this millet use less water to make it appear grainy and not mushy.

    Add few vegetables and prepare this millets daddojanam and it becomes a full meal.

    After making this daddojanam serve immediately as the millets absorb moisture from curd and becomes thick when kept aside for some time. Otherwise add some buttermilk and mix and serve if serving later.

    I prefer to have this daddojanam chilled but it can also be had immediately after making it.

    Make different healthy varieties using the millet and enjoy its health benefits.

    Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
