Foxtail Millet is known in different names in different parts of India. 
Foxtail Millet is known as Navane (ನವಣೆ/ನವಣಕ್ಕಿ) in Kannada, /Karnataka. In Telugu - Korral,
In Hindi and Punjabi -Kangni and Gurjarathi - Kang. Malayalam - Thina, Tamil -Thinai/Kavalai and in Marati it is called as Rala or Kang.

Let us see some benefits of having "Millets " in our diet.
Millets are highly nutritious grains. They are non gluten and no acid forming foods. They are very easy to digest. Millets release lesser percentage of glucose and takes longer time to digest. It helps to lower the diabetes risk. They contain minerals like iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.
It is an easy dish, used Navane/instead of rice (Substitution for rice) because of its healthy values.
Lets see the recipe now:

Things Needed :

Urid dal : 1/2 Cup (I have used whole white urid)
Foxtail Millet/Navane : 2 Cups
Flattened Rice / Avalakki : 1/2 Cup
Methi Seeds : 1 Teaspoon
Salt : As required

Method :

1. Clean and wash foxtail millet, urid and methi/fenugrik seeds and soak for 3 to 4 hours.

2. Wash and soak Flattened Rice/Avalakki for 2 to 3 hours.

3. Grind all the ingredients together using little water. Remove from the mixi jar and put it in a big bowl. Add salt. Let it ferment. (Over night or 5 to 6 hours.

4. Next day morning before preparing dosa, mix the ferment dough nicely. Add water if required and bring it to dosa consistency.

5.  Keep a pan on the fire and clean the pan with a tissue. Sprinkle oil and clean it again.
6. Take a ladle of dosa dough and spread it on the tava in a round shape. (with the help of ladle).
7. Cook on medium and low flame. Sprinkle oil/Ghee on the top.
8. Turn the other side and cook for 10 seconds and remove from the pan.

9. Foxtail Millet dosa is ready to serve. Serve with the side dish you have prepared.


10. Repeat the same with remaining dough. Add a spoon of ghee/butter on the top of dosa before serving.


 You can also prepare thick dosas. Just put a ladle full of the dough and slightly spread.


Note :

 Do not add too much of water while grinding the dough. I have used the mixi jar to grind the ingredients. Do not put a force while spreading the dough on the tava/pan. Do not put dough on a oily pan. It does not spread much. Sticks to your ladle. Clean the oil surface of the pan with a clean towel or kitchen tissue.
Time : Dosa preparation : 20 Minutes + Soaking 4 hours - grinding 10 minutes -fermentation 5 to 6 hours.
Serves : 4 to 6
