Vegan 3 Seeded Spelt Bread

Its been a while, i baked bread at home, if i dont bake a weekend, everyone at home will complain that am not baking at home. And one of my recent visit to a nearby organic shop pulled me to get a packet of spelt flour. Spelt is one among the wheat varieties and its one of the ancient grains which is very much used in the place of wheat flour. Since this grain is completely healthy, they are used in many European countries like Germay , Austria where spelt loaves and rolls are widely available in bakeries. And the unripe spelt are dried and eaten as well. Beer is brewed from spelt in Bavaria and Belgium. Spelt is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, several vitamins and many dietary minerals. Since this flour is high in protein and low in gluten lends a slightly sweet and nutty flavor to the bread.

Brown Rice Paal Payasam/Brown Rice Milk Pudding

Brown rice is a highly nutritious food. It is a whole grain that is relatively low in calories, high in fiber, gluten-free and can be incorporated into a variety of dishes. Since brown rice is a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, selenium,thiamine, niacin, Vitamin B3 obviously its high in fiber. When the outermost layer of a grain rice (the huskà is removed) brown rice is produce.Brown rice has a shelf life of approximately 6 months but hermetic storage, refrigerating or freezing can extend their lifetime.The cooking time of brown rice needs generally a longer cooking times than the usual white rice.Brown rice and white rice have similar amounts of calories and carbohydrates. I have been cooking with brown rice since a long, however i seriously want to showcase some of brown rice dishes which i usually cook for our weekly menu. I have couple of dishes to post but still i picked this alluring, creamy brown rice payasam aka milk pudding to post for this week's blogging marathon.

Broken Jowar Sambar Bath/Cholam Sambar Sadham

Jowar is a gluten free grain and its an incredible millets, i have been looking for a chance to cook with this grain and finally during my last trip to India i grabbed a packet of broken jowar from an Organic store. Obviously when i picked this organic broken jowar, the first dish came to my mind is Upma. Yes upma is the only dish we can think about when you grab these sort of unique broken grains na. However when i picked 'Wholegrains' as the theme for this week's blogging marathon, i thought of making a different dish from that usual upma. You might have noticed that am running a month of blogging marathon with 4 themes for 4 weeks. After dishing out 6 international breakfast for the first week, i opted for No Onion No Garlic recipes for the second week. And now for the third week, my theme was Wholegrains. After three different dishes with three different wholegrains, i couldnt stop myself to post this incredible sambar bath with broken jowar grains.
