The trend in today’s lifestyle for those who care much about their health is to cut short polished cereals. The husk free, majorly polished cereals do no GOOD to your health. You can get them replaced by unpolished ones or millets. But since years we have been using such polished cereals in our life that we can’t stay away from it. So I would say using millets once or twice a week would definitely help initially.
This is the point where my healthy life style journey would merge with old, trusted friend: millets. Unlike barnyard millet idli which need some kind of pre-planning, I wanted an instant version of food with millets. So here comes barnyard millet upma. It has unpolished cereal, your favorite veggies, some spices and tempering to make it eat-worthy. The crunch of finely chopped veggies with the flavors of ginger and nicely cooked millet, the upma tastes the best. The water ratio of 1:3 works well for this millet to cook perfectly soft and fluffy. So lets get a step ahead towards healthy life style.
