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.

I have used button mushrooms in this recipe as i felt they work best in absorbing flavors and also retaining its shape.

Grilled Vegetable Panini Recipe

The Grilled Vegetable Panini Recipe is a sandwich that makes a quick and healthy dinner. You could use a Panini bread or even a Baguette to make the sandwich. But I personally prefer the Panini Bread as it is soft and becomes crips only after the grilling process. Try this super delicious Panini Sandwich for a weeknight dinner. If you are conscious about the fat in cheese, you could omit the cheese and just serve it without it. It will taste just as good.

The Podalangai Poriyal Recipe is a very traditional South Indian Style dish, that is very healthy, nutrituous and quick to make. Podalangai also known as Snake Gourd, is a very nutritious vegetable that is used in the diet for many diseases as well as preventing a few diseases. At home I like to make this vegetable really simple, by just steaming it and seasoning it with a few condiments and finally tossed in coconut.
