  1. Hello Vijiya,

    Your website has wonderful millet recipes. Thank you for sharing with us.
    Being a Gujarati, I will suggest to add vegetables to Millet Handvo. It is one of the important ingredient. You can add Dudhi-type of gourd, carrot, cabbage, peas, cauliflower etc. It will make handvo soft and one pot recipe.

    1. Hi Arti, thanks so much for the motivating comment. Yes, I add veggies mostly fresh methi leaves as my family likes it. I will definitely add dudhi etc. When I make next time. Thanks so much for the suggestion.
