Pearl Millet flour dough stuffed with kidney beans, paneer, some veggies and flavored with mild spices is a high protein and nutritious snack that can be eaten as evening snack with tea or served as appetizer to the guests.
Pearl Millet commonly known as Bajra in India is blackish grey in color and is highly favored in regular eating. It is low in calories with lots of health benefits. Pearl millet is not very expensive so it can be easily consumed in our daily eating routine. Pearl Millet is high in iron and helps our body fight with many diseases. It helps in lowering cholesterol and is a great source of antioxidant and has high fiber content. Above all Pearl Millet (Bajra) promotes weight loss and overall good health.
While walking through the grocery aisle my eyes fell onto the Pearl Millet flour (Bajra) and I remembered my mom trying very hard to feed me Bajra roti when I was a kid. I smiled at the thought that I used to run away because I wanted to eat some junk food like chips and soda. HAHAHA ! With time we all change and now I run after my daughter to feed her Pearl Millet in some form. I got the flour and instead of making regular roti I thought of making something more appetizing so that my family can consume Pearl Millet happily. I came up with Beans Paneer stuffed Millet Cups. This recipe is a complete package of protein, fiber, calcium and lots of flavor. With this one appetizer recipe I was able to feed my family a complete nutritious snack and I was happy that they did not ask for any junk food later. 🙂
