The millet flour is also a good source of Vitamins, Proteins and Dietary fiber. We have added one phulka for the meal plate, depending on your requirement you can increase it to two.
The Methi kadhi is a creamy yogurt curry that is mixed along with fresh methi leaves. Methi leaves are great to control bowel problems and cholesterol. They also contain anti- diabetic elements that helps in preventing and controlling Type 2 Diabetics.
