We all know that millets have higher nutritional value and are gluten-free. I have written a lot about the health benefits of millet in my how to cook millets and other millet recipes, so do not want to bore you all with the same thing again and again. This post is just to give an idea that you can prepare a variety of dishes with millets. You do not have to make any significant changes in your diet as millets can be substituted in place of rice for many recipes. Do include millets in your diet at least 2-3 days a weeks and pave your way to better health.
