Little Millet & Dals Dosa (Adai)

Little Millets & Dals Dosa is a healthy dosa. Instead of rice I have used little millet since it is healthy and gluten free. This type of Dosa is called as Adai when you mix some spices with the dough. This dosa can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, as a snack in the evening or even for dinner.
Little millet is called as Saame in Kannada, Saama in Telugu, Saamai in Tamil and Kodaa in Hindi. 

Lets see the benefits of eating Little millets and Lentils. (Dals).

Little Millet is gluten free and packed with vitamins and minerals. It is a good source of copper, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium. It is high in fiber and it help women avoid gallstones. Little Millet reduces the bile acids, increases insulin sensitivity and lowers the blood fats.

Lentils are extremely rich in soluble fiber. They reduce the blood cholesterol levels. Lentils are useful for people who suffer from constipation. Lentils maintain the blood sugar level in diabetic patients. Lentils have antioxidant properties. Lentils increase energy levels by replenishing iron stores.
