Multi Millet Lemon ‘Rice’

Today, I present to you the recipe for Multi-Millet Lemon ‘Rice’ – the same old traditional South Indian dish, but made with mixed millets instead of rice. This lemon ‘rice’ tastes just as delicious and is just as simple to prepare, but is a whole lot healthier.

Chatpati Vegetable Khichdi

By now, you guys probably know that our family is one of big khichdi fans. Khichdi often finds pride of place on our dining table, in different versions and flavours. We love experimenting with different types of khichdi!  The latest type of khichdi I prepared was a Chatpati Vegetable Khichdi, with chaat masala adding a lovely, refreshing, tangy flavour to it.

The Chatpati Vegetable Khichdi turned out absolutely beautiful! It made for a lovely change from the usual Vegetable Daal Khichdi we make with garam masala in it. I was in the mood to indulge and topped the khichdi with some grated cheese too, which elevated the dish to a whole new level.

Highlights: World On A Plate – 2018

The famed VR Bengaluru mall in Whitefield, Bangalore, saw a 3-day culinary festival, World On A Plate, happening between June 8 and 10, 2018. For the uninitiated, World On A Plate (popularly called WOAP) is one of Bangalore’s biggest foodie festivals, which aims to bring together food enthusiasts from all spheres, from across the globe – foodies, food brands, masterchefs, stalwarts from the food industry, restaurants, food critics, food bloggers and journalists, and the likes. I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of World On A Plate – 2018, the third edition of this festival, which happens to coincide with VR Two, the second-anniversary celebrations of VR Bengaluru.

Amway Launches Nutrilite Traditional Herbs

I don’t think, as a brand, Amway needs much of an introduction. Most of us are familiar with at least one of Amway’s various products, right? Well, the brand added one more product to its extensive portfolio yesterday – Nutrilite Traditonal Herbs – a range of dietary supplements based on a combination of ancient Indian wisdom and modern science. Along with a few other bloggers across genres, I had the opportunity of witnessing the launch of the product at Amway’s spanking new Digital Experience Centre at Indirangar, Bangalore. The event commemorated Amway’s 20th anniversary as well.

#SmartlyOwn With #Rentomojo

Recently, I had the opportunity to be part of a bloggers’ meet by Rentomojo, an event that turned out to be quite an interesting and enlightening one.

What is Rentomojo, you ask? Well, it is a new ‘made in India’ venture, a platform that allows you to rent bikes, furniture and household appliances in exchange for a nominal ‘Rental Monthly Instalment’ (RMI). The idea is based on the way the modern youth thinks and the way their career paths commonly seem to evolve.

Introducing Purganics: For Eco-Friendly Menstrual Care And More

If you have been reading my blog regularly, you would know that, as a family, we are consciously working towards a more eco-friendly, simpler and healthier lifestyle, one little step at a time. We are constantly looking out for sustainable, chemical-free alternatives for various products we use for ourselves and for our home, that are made conscientiously.

I am all too aware of the loads of chemicals that go into the making of the sanitary pads I use, and have been looking out for a better alternative for quite some time now. So, I was super happy when I recently discovered Purganics, an organic cotton no-chemicals sanitary pad. They were kind enough to send across samples of their pads for an honest review, along with a bamboo toothbrush.
