Pearl millet is a nutrient-dense, brownish, small grain that is loaded with many health benefits. Also known as bajra in Hindi and kambu in Tamil, pearl millet is a rich source of phytic acid that keeps cholesterol under control. Rich in fibre, these super grains are a great addition to the diet as they help manage body weight. Pearl Millet Grains are also an abundant source of iron, which helps improve haemoglobin levels. This wonder millet is rich in potassium and magnesium, which help control blood pressure. Overall, including pearl millet in your diet is a way to practice healthy and mindful eating. Apart from the various dishes made using pearl millet like dosa, roti, porridge, or kambu kanji( popular in Tamil Nadu that keeps the body cool during the summer season), another way to include pearl millet in your diet is preparing puttu using pearl millet puttu powder. Puttu is a traditional food made by steaming rice flour in a cylindrical puttu maker. Pearl millet puttu is a nutritious twist that offers the amazing flavour and aroma of coconut and pearl millet, making it a wholesome option for breakfast or snack.
