RAVA KICHADI

I started liking Rava kichadi after tasting for the first time at Saravana Bhavan few decades ago. Though it is a closer cousin of Rava upma, the taste and flavor is entirely different. Adding vegetables and ghee makes it a complete healthy breakfast.

THINAI APPAM | FOXTAIL MILLET APPAM

Millets are very versatile and can be easily substituted for rice in traditional recipes. I tried arisi appam recipe by replacing rice with Thinai (Foxtail millet). Millets (Siruthaniyangal) has many health benefits. These millets are not new to me. Back in my childhood days, whenever I visit my grandparents place, they used to prepare kanji with finger millet and pearl millets. At that time, the health benefits were not much appreciated. It is good to see that these grains are gaining popularity now.
