Thread. I'm cooking proso #millet upma which is a South Indian dish. The ingredients to be fried are as seen in the pic. I've used a pressure cooker to do everything, from frying to cooking the #millets #IYM2023 ImageImage
2. Add mixed vegetables to the mix. I've also added a bit of turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Then add one cup washed proso millets to the mix and add 2 to 3 cups of water. ImageImage
3. Pressure Cook until 3 whistles and let the pressure dissipate slowly. End result is a nice upma with a texture similar to semolina which is what the original recipe calls for. The #proso #millets is thr gluten free version of the same. Garnish with coriander leaves. ImageImageImage

Picked up reading after a long time, let's say 7 years. Fortunate enough to start with this book.
I start a new innings of my life through this book.
Completed 8 chapters after I started reading it in the last week of March.
Summary of what inspired me to imbibe
In my daily life is fitness and health, @narendramodi spoke about depression and at the same time on yoga, so mental and physical health being good is a must.
Exams should be celebrated with the motto ' Smile more, Score more'. This I will try imbibing in my life as a lawyer
Towards end of one chapter , @narendramodi has written about encouraging mock parliament sessions between youth to initiate suggestions towards development
Be active in sports or even yoga and do it on a daily basis yo avoid lifestyle diseases like diabetes. I am trying this

Based on India’s proposal UN declared 2023 as International Year of Millets.

It starts from today to raise awareness and to bring back millets on your table.
Millets are coarse grains, divided in two groups; Major millets (Shorghum and Pearl millets) and Small millets (Madua/Ragi, Kodo, Kutaki, Sawan etc). They have their many local names in our country. Most common names are Jwar-Bajra. Though we use hear Kodo-Sawan in our childhood.
For the last couple of years we are consuming Bajra which is produced well in Rajasthan. However, I tried ‘roti’ of Kodo as well.
