I have been trying many millet recipes. So far my family are really loving millet recipes. I find that foxtail millet with jaggery tastes really great. This is perfect for evening snacks for kids. The other day I was talking to my MIL and she was talking about her growing up days. Those days they plant millets because crops take shorter time than rice or wheat.
