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.

Parathas are a staple of North India and typically served as breakfast with raita and pickle. We were lucky to have a small dabba near our work place. Whenever bored with our usual menu of the cafetaria we used to go the dabba for some spicy parathas.That's how I got introduced to stuffed parathas and collected the recipes from my north indian friends.

Fried modhakam is prepared with maida/wheat flour with jaggery filling and typically fried in pure ghee. This modhakam along with appam is a must for Ganesh homam. This can also be prepared for Ganesh chathurthi. Also this neivedhyam can be prepared the previous day night itself.
