Foxtail Millet Biryani – Wholesome, Healthy And Flavorful

by slurrp

“Biryani is not just a food, it is an emotion.” 

Fragrant and flavourful, food lovers, young or old will vouch for the fact that there are very limited foods that can be cooked time and again (say within the same week). But, biryani is one such dish which can be tweaked and prepared at least 10 times a week.

A complete meal in itself, this kid-friendly vegetable biryani has a twist to it. Not spicy, but still flavorful and packed with wholesome goodness. Read on to know what’s cooking in our kitchen.

Yes! We have a healthy take on the classic biryani where basmati rice has been replaced with foxtail millet.

Millets are packed with a good amount of protein and fiber and foxtail millet helps lowering blood cholesterol. Try this millet biryani and see how yummy the recipe would turn out when the spices breathe life into the dish.
