Ragi Halbai/Fingermillet & Coconut Halwa

Halubai or Halubai, this sweet is quite popular in Udupi,Mangalore and Malnad regions of Karnataka for festivals or celebrations. Often made with rice, jaggery and coconut, this sweet can be prepared well with Semolina aka Rava and Fingermillet aka Ragi. I have already tried making this Halubai with Semolina and you can find here for an another event. And my today's post is going to an another version of Halubai cooked with a millet which is quite interesting and healthy to add in our diet. I have been cooking with ragi flour aka fingermillet flour for a while. I do add them in my parathas, in most of my bakes and not to forget that this millets have their own place in my pantry. Healthy and definitely a nutritious millet to add often in our weekly diet, this millets are one of my favourite. However this millets are used for making many traditional village style sweet dishes like ragi jaggery adai, simli etc.. Coming to my today's Halubai, its a must to try as this sweet is definitely a delicious one.

Cashew Coconut Milk Pulao

We love briyani during anytime of the day, obviously i will definitely make biriyani atleast twice a month especially on week-ends. Most of our Sunday lunch will be either biriyani or pulao. Served along with a rich, creamy curry or side dish, one can finish their lunch or dinner happily without any fuss. I have already dished out couple of pulao and my space have varieties of pulao cooked either with vegetables, seafoods or meats. However my today's recipe is one of easiest pulao one can dish out quickly without any hassle. Even if you ran out of vegetables or meats, this dish will make everyone happy as this dish is full of flavors. With a handful of cashewnuts, garam masala and homemade coconut milk is quite enough to prepare this pulao.
