RAGI CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE | MALT | MILLET RECIPES

Millet-Milkshake
Ragi | Finger millet flour, i made puttu with that for this morning breakfast. First i thought, i will click pictures and post today but morning it was hectic i couldn't click. While i was serving ragi puttu for my hubby, Varsha asked me what is this. I said it is Ragi puttu and explained her the health benefits of ragi flour as a typical mom, and told her to try a spoon of it. I remember my mom making this keepai puttu during our childhood days and we used to look forward for this one. When she had a bite she told it was tasting as chocolate. Even when i first tasted ragi cookies i felt the same too. As a typical teenager and a perfect foodie, Varsha told me why don't you try Ragi chocolate milkshake with this. Amazed with her idea when i was browsing in google, i saw in Priya have  posted this ragi chocolate milkshake | Malt recipe. So i tried today ragi malt with chocolate chips. Let the kids enjoy this healthy and delicious milkshake in this summer.

SWEET BEEDA RECIPE | MEETHA PAAN RECIPE

Meetha-paan
When i posted the recipe of Paan juice , i told i will post the recipe of sweet beeda too. I got the gulkand and cherries from India during my trip quick trip in February first week. Before this Chinese New year long weekend holiday here, i went to the Indian shop to buy veggies. Saw betel leaves over there and thought this will be the right time to buy this and make a post for meetha pan. Me and my hubby do not eat paan or any supari too. In our friends group all of them love paan. So we had a get together during the long weekend holidays and so i clicked this before going to the party and took it for them. Gulkand played a wonderful role in the taste of paan(as said by my friends). This video helped me in making the shape of the paan. Stay tuned for recipes using gulkand coming up in jeyashris kitchen.
