Ragi Sweet Adai Recipe | Finger Millet Sweet Adai | Millet Recipes

Finger Millet(ragi) is a rich source of calcium and iron. It is good to include it in our diet, considering its health benefits.

Palak Poori Recipe | Spinach Poori

Poori is one of the kids friendly food that most of the children love. Those who follow me on Instagram would know that I pack Poori for Happy's lunch box once a week. I pair it with poori masala, channa masala, aamras or any non-veg gravy. Somedays, instead of plain poori, I make masala poori, beetroot poori or spinach poori and pair it with Greek yoghurt. Also, on lazy days I pack poori with Nutella or any chocolate spread. Recently, when I was going through my recipe index, I figured out that I have not shared any other poori recipes here apart from the regular poori and hence thought of including it now. 
Do check out my other paratha/roti recipes below:

Capsicum Sambhar Recipe | Kudamilagai Sambhar | Sambhar Recipes

Sambhar is a very popular South Indian dish and every household will have it, at least once in their weekly menu. When I started cooking, I always made mixed vegetable sambhar and never bothered to think about any other sambhar. Later, when I want to make quick sambhar without chopping too many veggies, then I started making this capsicum sambhar. Though I am not very much fond of capsicum, I love this sambhar since capsicum brings out a unique flavour to the sambhar. 
I have already posted the below Sambhar Recipes in the blog:

Ragi Adai Recipe | Finger Millet Adai | Ragi adai with drumstick leaves | Kezhvaragu Adai | Millet Recipes

Millets are very nutritious and I started to include millets in our routine meal plans more frequent now. When I was in Chennai, I always have a batch of homemade ragi flour from my native and I regularly make puttu with that. When Happy was a baby, we give her ragi porridge sweetened with karupatti(palm jaggery) and I stopped it after a few years when she lost interest. 
During my last India trip in December, I brought a pack of homemade ragi flour and started using it again. When I was planning to post new recipes with ragi in the blog, I found these pictures on my hard disk which was taken in 2015. Back then I made this ragi adai with homegrown drumstick leaves and homemade ragi flour. I was not really happy with the photos hence thought of discarding it. However, chances to get drumstick leaves in Sydney at the moment is not possible for me. Hence thought of sharing the recipe with the very old images that I have. I will be posting more ragi based recipes soon. Also, if you are looking for more millets recipes then please check the below links:
