As a part of our collaboration with The Goya Journal, in our previous blog, we shared the recipe of barnyard millets or foxtail millets payasam. Hope you enjoyed it. We all know how millets are climate-smart, delicious, versatile and nutritious. In fact, this grain is also one of the key ingredients of any healthy food kids (as well as babies). For most of us, however, cooking with these supergrains is still a bit of a challenge. This recipe is part of a series we took all the guesswork out of cooking with millets and helped you make easy, creative dishes that will become a staple in your home. We have also mentioned it in our recipe cards which were shared earlier this month.
