Little Millet (Panicum miliare), one of the small millets, is called kutki in Hindi, sava (Marathi), gajro (Gujrati), same (Kannada), samai (Tamil), and samalu (Telugu). Little millet is suitable for people of all age groups. Little millet is grown throughout India and is a traditional crop. It is a relative of proso millet but the seeds of little millet are much smaller than proso millet. It is mostly consumed as rice. Any recipe that demands staple rice can be prepared using little millet. It has the smallest grains, so it cooks faster than other millets. Little millet has a significant role in providing nutraceutical components such as phenols, tannins and phytates along with other nutrients. Samai dosa, porridge, paddu and payasam from little millet are few traditional recipes in different millet growing states in India. Little millet is commonly available across the country as a whole grain.
