Magic of Millets

The magic of millets is known to all of us. These igloos of goodness were lost but now have been found with great fervour. We meet so many of our customers who would love to move to "only millets" diet. They all believe that the indian sisters of quinoa are the freshest and nutrition rich substitutes to our carb heavy rice and wheat.

But where we all get stuck is the how to make them? What is the propotion of water or the cooking time. As Chef says nothing can beat experience and these afterall are the ancient grains. A few trials and you can eat not only healthy but indulge in flavours long forgotten
