When you feel like pampering yourself with traditionally wholesome food, reach out for the millets! Wonder foods that they are, millets also have a very enjoyable flavour and rustic texture.

Here, sanwa millet is cooked with coconut milk and perked up with mint, coriander and other flavour enhancers. The Minty Sanwa is so tasty and sumptuous that you will want to have it not just on faaral days but on regular days as well.

Serve with Peanut Kadhi and Kand Wafers .
