Thought for the day

Swallowing ragi mudde* gives the feeling of swallowing allopathy medicines – the taste surely differs!

Inside My Sling Bag

*ragi mudde: It is a dish made from finger millet flour (also called nachni in some places in India) and is best consumed when dipped in ghee* and then in chicken curry, mutton soup or spinach sambar*. It is supposed to be swallowed in small portions without masticating it first and is considered to be a very healthy food option in southern parts of India (specially Karnataka)

*ghee: clarified butter made from the milk of a buffalo or cow, mostly used in South Asian cooking

*sambar: a lentil based vegetable stew, cooked with pigeon pea and tamarind broth. It is mostly popular in Indian and Sri Lankan cuisines.
