Millet Cooked Salad Recipe

by Renu Gulati September 20, 2019

This recipe is a fusion one, similar to the middle eastern tabbouleh. Takes about 15 minutes to make. Light and easy to digest. It is a complete meal in itself in terms of carbs, proteins and veggies though in Ayurveda we classify a complete meal as comprising the six tastes, sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, astringent.
