After reading up on Millets, I was a little more observant on my recent trip to the local Indian stores last time and guess what I found? Little Millet/ Sa(n)wa / Sa(a)ma!! I then looked up information about this millet and found it is quite popular and is used part of the fasting (Farali) food in many states.
I decided to try this little millet in an indirect form and hit upon this idea!! I felt these little millets were more like broken rice or rice rava and didn't find any distinctive taste or bite to it. So good news is, it is easily disguise-able :).

Little Millet / Sama / Sanwa 1/2 cup
Moong Dal 3/4 cup
Ginger 1 inch
Green Chillies 2-3
Coriander leaves few (Optional)
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Onions, finely chopped (Optional)
Oil to spray while cooking
Method Of Preparation -
Soak the little millet and moong dal for 3-4 hours. (I soaked overnight).
Drain and grind into a fine batter adding ginger, green chillies, coriander leaves, cumin seeds and water as needed.
On a hot griddle / tawa, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a thin circle. Sprinkle finely chopped onions on it, spray a little oil all over and let it cook.
Flip it onto the other side until cooked.
Remove and continue with the rest of the batter.
Serve it hot with a chutney of your choice.
