Oats Carrot Payasam

Indian desserts are a treat to taste buds and undoubtedly an indispensable part of any festival or celebration - loaded with sweetness and enriched with goodness of milk, nuts, etc. Talking of indian desserts only brings water in my mouth. The very first image which comes to my mind when we say dessert is a big bowl of rice kheer or payasam cooked in milk loaded with heartful of dry fruits. yummm.....

While in North its kheer made up of rice cooked in milk, in south its popular as Payasam or payasa , be it rice or vermicelli cooked in coconut milk and jaggery. In south there's varities to prepare the payasam or payasa but in North india all sweets or desserts are mainly of dairy products. Myself being north indian also uses milk more and today's recipe is also inspired by south though I have used milk inplace of coconut milk. With a twist I have cooked oats n carrots in milk and the outcome was commendable. Since I used more of milk the dessert came out as payasam , if we red…

Sprouts Dhokla

Sprouts my energetic start for the day, high in protiens and low in carbs. A wonderful healthy breakfast to get indulge in. Sprouts can be of any pulses and all are healthiest, be it brown moth dal, whole moong dal, or whole masoor dal, etc. I generally prefer Whole green moong daal over other as its easy to digest and less gaseous.

I generally include sprouts in my meal atleast twice a week in any form, sprouts dhokla, tikki, salads, chaat or even add to soups. You may love to try my other sprouts recipes as well - Sprouts tikki, Sprouts currySprouts Dosa, Sprouts Chaat,  Since I am little allergic to raw sprouts I prefer using steamed sprouts in my recipes. Never overcook them as nutritive value gets finished. Always steam little for use. Those who like crunchy raw sprouts and are able to digest it , can use it direct.
