Moongil rice appam - Bamboo Rice Appam - Healthy Breakfast recipe - Healthy Dinner recipe - dosa recipes

These days all the good old items like Millets, Moongil rice are becoming more common in India. Every time I go to India I find few new items with millets. Whenever I find something new, I get it sometimes. Some times the Ingredients I buy become expired or old. I need to remember new things so that it doesn't go wasted. These days when I buy something new I would try it out immediately. This time I brought Moongil rice. I tried Payasam. After that I had left over rice. So I wanted to try out either dosa or appam. My kids asked for appam. It came out well. Haivng healthy food doesn't have to be boring
