Varagarisi Upma/Kodo Millet Upma/Varagu Upma/Varagu Arisi Upma Recipe

I have been thinking about sharing with you all, millet recipes from my kitchen, but I was not blogging for quite sometime due to various reasons. But today I have something very special for all of you, it's nothing but Varagu arisi upma. Varagu arisi is gluten-free and is excellent source of vitamins and minerals. It is rich in fiber and digestive friendly. Studies have shown varagu arisi helps in controlling blood sugar and cholesterol. It is packed with nutrients and is great energy source for all the age groups. I have made a very simple varagu arisi upma but you can add a twist to it by adding a bowl of vegetable to make vegetable varagu arisi upma. I will post that recipe also very soon. For now try out this Varagu Arisi upma and post your comments. Mean while check out other millet recipes here.

Paruppu Keerai Chapathi/Chapathi with Dal & Greens/Keerai Chapathi Recipe/Paruppu Keerai Chapathi with step by step photos

Today I am going to share a very interesting chapathi made with dal and greens. The choice of greens is totally your’s, I have used araikeerai to make this chapathi. I always come across one problem when packing lunch, my husband and elder daughter prefer to have rice for lunch and my little one always will prefer to have chapathis or rotis etc. Whenever I make paruppu keerai masiyal or any other green varieties my little daughter never has it during lunch, and I used to feel very bad about it. But then whenever I make paruppu keerai during weekdays for lunch, I blend the prepared keerai and make chapathis for her. But for my husband and elder daughter I make rice, mix this dal and prepare some vegetables and pack the lunch. I think lot of moms must be coming across this kind of problem when packing lunch for your whole family, but when you go by my idea you will feel happy and satisfied. One best part of it is your kid will eat all the chapathis and she/he will get the greens also. Meanwhile friends, do not forget to check out other interesting and delicious breakfast varieties here.
