My daughter loves pasta.. Guess a lot of kids do.. Hey the truth is I also love it.. lol:).. So I surely try my best to make it healthy. I have used Whole Wheat Pasta here.. Reason - that is what I prefer.. Even my daughter likes the nutty taste of the whole wheat pasta and actually does not like the regular pasta.. This is my daughter’s favorite lunch or dinner and she is super excited when I make it.. Pasta is an Italian dish which I have customized with Indian spices and taste according to our preference and liking..

You are short on time and want to do a quick one??? Here is the simple, healthy and delicious pulao.. If you are looking for a short grain but prefer the taste of rice.. Try this short grain – Varagu / Kodo Millet.. I made this for my family and they were very pleased and loved it.. Makes perfect for travel and lunchbox…Varagu is a type of short grain that I have been introduced recently.. It looks very much like rice but it is about 1/3 the size.. It is very healthy.. Varagu is a grain that can grow without much baby sitting from the farmers and this can be grown without Pesticides.. This makes it one of the favorite crops of the farmers. I have used polished varagu, you can use the brown one also. Also it tastes very close to rice, so it is very easy to be included in the diet..
