Idly is one of the popular South indian breakfast which is very low calorie food. Today I am giving Idly with millets. Millets are very healthy and good for diet.I have used 2 variety of millets ,Foxtail millet and Barnyard millet combined with urad dal and little rice. Let us see how to make this.

Wash and soak all the Ingredients together for 4 hours.
Grind well. Add salt and mix . Do not make very smooth paste.
Keep the batter for fermentation atleast 9 to 10 hours. Let it ferment nicely.
Grease idly moulds and pour the batter in each moulds.
Take pressure cooker or Idly cooker . Add water.
Keep the idly moulds inside the cooker. Close it with a lid.
