Homemade Multi Millet Flour !



Millets also known as Sirudhaniyam in Tamil are very highly nutritious grain and best alternative to rice and even wheat. It is diabetic friendly , non glutinous and easy to digest.
Millets have a low Glycemic Index means they release glucose very slowly in blood so that it becomes a good option for diabetic people. 
Millet flour is readily available in many shops nowadays but i always prefer making at home. I used all 6 types of millets here along with some oats and flaxseed that is purely optional.
