Spinach and Millet Pulav Recipe

The Spinach & Millet Pulav Recipe is a great way to include millets in your diet. I have used foxtail millet, also known as Thinai in Tamil. It is one of those millets that are easy to cook and is very similar to cooking broken wheat. A lot of times, when I make a pulav with grains or millets, I tend to use either broken wheat or fox tail millet instead of rice. This recipe of the pulav is also satvik and does not use onion and garlic and making it even more healthy and nutritious. Serve this delicious Spinach & Millet Pulav along with a Raita of your choice. 

You will notice that I have kept the spices to a minimum, what this does is that it brings out the flavors of the millet and spinach and gives a rich taste.
