This year I have a resolution which I want to keep. I need to take part in Blogging Marathon all the 12 months. I don’t know whether I can keep up that resolution but I will try hard. Last year I have been so irregular in taking part and I really miss my regular blogging. If life is good this year, I am sure I will keep my word. For the first week of BM this month, I chose to do healthy recipes perfect for diabetics. Whenever I am given a choice between desserts and healthy recipes, I usually opt for desserts. But this year I will be doing more of healthy cooking and this seems like a great start.
Millets are nowadays very famous and I personally use a lot of millet in day to day cooking. When I went to the farmer’s market today, I saw a small stall selling home made and millet products. The first pack that caught my eye was the millet noodles pack. When I read the ingredient list, I was quite interested as it was full of millet flours. Combined with this week’s theme, it would make a great diet recipe. So I bought home a pack and tried with my usual noodles recipe. It came out so nice. The taste was absolutely fine and my daughter devoured a plate of this noodles. Made with very little oil, this is a perfect diet recipe. You can use any vegetable you have in your pantry. You can even add sautéed tofu or paneer. The combinations you can get are endless.
Millet Noodles-1 pack / 180gm
Garlic – 2-3 pods, thinly sliced
Cabbage / any vegetable combined -1/2 cup

In a large pan bring water to boil and add the noodles.

Pour the noodles in a sieve and wash it over cool water to stop cooking.

In a pan heat oil and add garlic. Sauté for a minute and then add onions and green chillies.
When the onions turn translucent, add cabbage and let them fry for a minute or two.
