Recipe Notes

Where to find foxtail millet in Bangalore

You can find Foxtail Millet at stores like Namdhari’s in Bangalore. I buy it from Towness– our produce and grocery supplier. I’m assuming in other cities, you would get it at the traditional grain merchants, organic stores or health stores over regular supermarkets.
