Foxtail Millet Biryani

First of all, The Meal Algorithm wishes you a very happy new year!

May your year be filled with healthy and delicious food, shared with loving family and friends.
And may your plates always be colorful and your glasses clinking!

For sometime now, I’ve been looking for good and healthy rice substitutes, some complex carbs which are healthy , easy too cook and very easy on the pocket too. In that endeavor, am experimenting with various kinds of millets. And I must say I’ve got quite comfortable with incorporating them in my meals. Which is why I gathered the confidence to share one of my millet recipes here. There are more on the way, but this one’s an easy , tasty and full meal!


Korralu, as they are called in Telugu or Foxtail millet is one of the easily available millets, and can be used in almost any dish as a rice substitute. I pack these millets for my lunch box also, and mix them with dal and sabzi for lunch. For dinner, I resort to recipes like this which make a full meal.

Summer Pea Pasta

One of those days when I was eating salads on a daily basis, I felt this immense carb-craving. I craved pasta, and I knew exactly what I wanted to make.

I had bookmarked this awesome recipe from one of the earlier BBC Goodfood magazines, and knew I had to make this.

Thai curry flavored Poha

Yeah, I know how it sounds. Thai curry and Poha in the same sentence. :)
But it is a great combination, indeed. Veg Thai curry paste is nothing but a great mix of ginger, garlic, coriander, cumin and onions and of course, some specific Thai herbs like basil and Kafir lime leaves. Essentially, its like your regular South Indian sambar powder ;-)

So when I had some Thai curry paste left over in the fridge, and I had to eat a healthy , yet quick meal, I resorted to this quick meal, something I made in less than 15 min, since I had the curry paste ready in the fridge.
