Millet roti/ pulka :

Millets are “no glutenous” flours. To attain soft-edged, easy to roll roti’s, we need to prepare the proper, pliable dough. When you want to prepare roti dough, you can either add little rice flour or whole wheat flour to millet flour. Even though it is not a traditional method, it works out just fine to my family needs. It remains soft even after cooling, easy to make and works out just perfect for any rolls or wraps.

How: First, make a porridge of millet flour or a mixture of two to three millet flours by boiling water, salt,0ne a spoon of any cooking oil. When it starts boiling, add millet flour and cook until it is glossy.

When it is cool, add rice or whole wheat flour and make a dough. In this way, you would get very soft pulkas.

How I usually do is –


Ragi flour – ½ cup

Bajra flour – ½ cup

Jowar flour – ½ cup

Whole wheat flour- as needed

Water- 2 cup


 Oil -1 tsp.


-Take two cups of water, add oil, salt and boil. Now add millet flours and keep this for 2 to 3 minutes or until it cooks. Now remove from the flame and keep aside.

-When it is ready to handle, add whole wheat flour, make a firm ball like Chapati dough. Cover and keep this aside for 10 minutes for resting.

-Then start making a little thicker Chapati than the regular Chapati/ pulka’s and cook both the sides and place it on fire to fluff and serve either as it is or by applying ghee or oil.


-To make Glutenfree roti, add rice flour instead of whole wheat flour. 

-To make an initial porridge, you can use the microwave as well. 


Seven cup Burfi :

I am celebrating my blog’s 3rd Anniversary, what more reason do we need to celebrate than this? Presenting  one of the easiest sweets which can be prepared in a jiffy and with a straightforward. It is very easy to follow, no hassles of  making sugar syrup and worrying about its consistency. I must say, it is a beginner’s recipe, which is pretty simple, straight forward and hassle free. Mix everything, start making and at the end, be vigilant while achieving the right consistency and follow the notes, whatever I have listed. Even if you messed up a little, no worries, it would turn out delicious. If it is under done, it would be fudgy and if it is overdone, it would be like sweet granules. 😀


Besan /Bengal gram four – 1 cup

Milk – 1 cup

Ghee – 1 cup

Fresh grated coconut – 1 cup

Sugar – 3 cups ( I normally put 2 ¾ cup)


-Take one thick bottomed kadai, add everything from Besan to sugar.

-Switch on the gas. Fire should be kept at low flame and you should continue stirring without removing your hand.

-After 10 to 15 minutes you will see the changes and mixture will become bubbly and shiny.

-Now it is the time to add cardamom powder and be vigilant. It will be ready in any moment from now.

-When it is done, mixture will leave the sides, base and sides of the vessel will become light brown or sometimes we see the ghee separating and oozing out from the bubbles. (these are the indications to remove)

-Now pour this mixture to a greased vessel, don’t touch or press after pouring, leave as it is.

-Cool it for about 5 min and mark the lines by using a sharp knife.

-Once it is completely cooled (it takes anywhere between 2 to 3 hours), invert the plate on another plate or by keeping butter paper. It needs some knocking at the base because air bubbles would restrict the easy exit.

–   Remove gently, break all the pieces and store it in an airtight container.

Your 7 cup Burfi is ready to serve!
