7) Healthy Appetizers (Millet Fries): An easy and Healthier version of everyone’s favourite food!

FOR THE FRIES:

½ cup of water
1 cup raw Health Sutra Millet
¼ cup Nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon chile powder
Salt & Black Pepper to Taste
FOR THE DIP:
1 cup unsweetened plain soy yogurt
1 teaspoon dill
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoon lemon juice
Fresh black pepper to taste

TO MAKE THE FRIES:

When millet is cooked to be a thick, creamy porridge, it is very similar to polenta and that means it is amenable to being turned into fries. In fact, it prefers to be turned into fries.

To make Baked Millet Fries: Boil 2 ½ cups of water in a saucepan and add 1 cup of raw millet and a pinch of salt. Stir, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let stand for another 10 minutes.

Mix in ¼ cup nutritional yeast or vegan grated parmesan, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1 tsp. paprika, and salt and black pepper to taste.

Transfer the millet porridge to a shallow baking dish that has been oiled and spread it out evenly with a spatula. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate from 2 hours to overnight until it hardens completely and you can slice it.

Then slice the millet into strips resembling fries. Place the strips onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a single layer.

In a small bowl, mix together 1 tsp. each of garlic powder, paprika and chile powder (or your favourite spices). Spray the millet strips with cooking oil and sprinkle with the spice mix.

Turn the strips over and repeat on the other side. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until the strips appear golden brown. Flip them and continue to bake for 10-15 more minutes or until golden brown and crispy.

Remove from the oven and serve immediately with your favourite dip or condiment such as vegan ranch dressing.

TO MAKE THE DIP:

Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Place in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour to chill and allow flavours to combine.

9) The ‘nutritious’ Health Sutra Ragi (finger millet) dosa: If you’re new to Millet & looking for recipes to incorporate it in your diet, this is the perfect easy and healthy recipe to start with.

Ingredients

4 servings
2 cups Health Sutra ragi flour
1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
2-3 green chillies
1/2 cup coriander, chopped
1/2 cup onions, finely chopped (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt (to be adjusted as per taste)

Method

Mix Health Sutra Ragi flour with rice flour, finely chopped chilies, buttermilk, coriander and salt. Add some water to make a batter of pourable consistency.

If you prefer, finely chopped onions can be added too. I did not add onions as my mother in law does not prefer to have raw onions.

Ensure that the batter does not turn watery. Heat a griddle or tava, until it becomes hot. Add a drop of oil on it and spread it well all over the tava. Now, pour the batter with a ladle from the edges of the tava towards the centre, thinly. Let it cook on medium flame for 2-4 minutes.

As it cooks, it will turn from a pale pinkish hue (colour of the batter) a light brown colour. Now carefully, turn the dosa on the other side and cook for a minute.

Remove immediately and serve this warm dosa with your favourite chutney. When warm, this dosa is crispy at the edges and can be savoured plain too.
