Brown Rice Oats Khara Pongal | Venn Pongal | Special Post for Diabetes Awareness

Today Nov 1th is world diabetic day, we group of bloggers decided to make n post a healthy diabetic friendly recipe on this day and I am glad to share few info for this social awareness. There is no history of diabetics from my side but heard FIL had diabetics and so H is very conscious. My H prefers only jaggery based sweets and he limits with half or one…As he is very rare in taking white/regular rice (for kids sake I make white rice n for H I make brown rice separately). But when comes to pongal kids also enjoy brown rice when it is mashed well, so usually I make khara pongal with Brown rice and Oats combo for early dinner. As Swathi asked me to make a special post for diabetic awareness I opted this recipe.

Ancient Thinai Urundai | Foxtail Millet Honey Balls | தேனும் திணை மாவும்

It has been ages I tasted Thinai/Foxtail millet ladoo. Recently I got this millet in Korean super market n from that day calling my grandma n Aunty to know abt this thinai maavu/ladoo recipe. My grandma told that she had own cultivated sample millets n 2yrs back she used it during my cousins marriage. Yup this is a traditional recipe we make it particularly during any girls related functions like Puberty (Age Attending)/Marriage/Seemantham (Baby Shower) etc. Actually I forget how it looks with husk, so I googled n found the picture here. Even amma/grandma everyone describing it with husk, they soak the husked millet for few hours then using stone pestle (Ulaikai/Ural) remove the husk. But I explained n showed the fine processed millet in skype, then what they suggested is today's recipe :-) This foxtail millet ladoos are great neivedhyam for Lord Muruga with honey even I prepared this ladoos with pure honey.

Chola Paniyaram (சோள குழி பனியாரம்) | Sorghum or Jowar or Sola Kuzhi Paniyaram

Millet is one of the best-kept secrets of our ancestors. During my childhood I saw many millet varieties cultivated in our land n now only yellow corn/makka cholam they are hardly cultivating. Millets are rich in protein, as well as rich in minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc. These millets are good for diabetes n gluten free. We the whole family love any type of millet combined with usual idli batter, I often make these type of tiffins and will come up with more in future. A few already posted healthy millet recipes,
