Proso Millet Idli Rava
[Also called: Variga (Telugu), Baragu (Kannada), Pani Varagu (Tamil), Chena (Hindi)]
Proso Millet Idli rava can be used to prepare idlis.
You can start by replacing a part of the paddy rice rava with millet rava - you can feel the difference in taste and "wholesomeness". Also, if you are used to devouring 10 paddy rice idlies, these will make you feel full by 6!
