This is a superb desert recipe (adapted to millets from my mother’s payasam recipe) and very healthy to boot. Although I made it with moong daal, you could try it with other daals or even other millets! I like this Foxtail Millet Payasam with a good amount of raisins and cashews.
This Foxtail Millet Payasam is an ideal desert after a light meal since it is filling and rich.
Foxtail is very rich in phosphorus and thiamin (Vitamin B1) in addition to all the general millet characteristics (gluten-free, low glycemic index, high fibre, etc).
Foxtail Millet is also called Navane (in Kannada), Thenai (in Tamil), Korralu (in Telugu) and Kakum (in Hindi)
