This rich Foxtail Millet Pulao is a perfect brunch for the weekend.
The taste is very fresh and uplifting. Made from millet rice, the pulao is very filling and leaves you feeling satisfied for more than a few hours.
Foxtail millet give it a lovely golden hue which is very appetizing to me.
You can use whatever vegetables you wish to add, although I recommend carrots, beans, peas, tomatoes and onions (I also added some soya nuggets for added protein but that is completely up to you)
Plus, you can cook this in a electric rice cooker! It cook faster if you soak the Foxtail Millet Rice overnight – but dont put too much water/drain the water – you will lose valuable nutrients (Millets should be washed lightly)
So lets get started with the recipes.
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)
