I met Susmitha I think around Vegan Mofo last year or maybe earlier. Come to think of it, I met so many wonderful bloggers in that one whirlwind month.
Whole grains are easily available in India, or atleast thats what I remember from 10 years back So many varieties of wheat, millet, sorghum, barley and more. When my Mom asked me a few weeks back for recipes to add more Oats to her daily diet, and the lack of availability if quinoa there, I suggested to use the available grains there. She has loads of wheat and millet at home sitting to be milled into flour, and she was surprised when I told her to try pilafs kind of preparation with them:) Mom, here are some pictures for you. I will ask Dad, next week if he got to eat something new (Usually Dad doesnt remember the names of the new dishes, everything is food;). But he will mention that Mom made something different the other day, and it was like this or that and from the description I will know what Mom tried ;). Mom and Dad are working on finding a common Milk substitute in Chai they both like, and currently liking Cashew milk in most of their teas!
Super Yay for my Ma n Pa! I cant wait for the day when Mom is seen carrying containers of cashew cream to add to her tea while visiting family or restaurants in Nagpur
