Remember our grandparents/parents telling us about how they used to go to the store with an empty can to purchase chekku ennai?  In South India, chekku ennai was a way of life until 50 years ago. “Chekku ennai” is the local name for cold pressed sesame oil.

Cold pressed oils produced using low-heat methods are superior in quality compared to regular oils and are healthy alternative to cooking oils. Our ancestors primarily consumed cold pressed oils until about 50 years ago, when large-scale manufacturers of refined oils took over the market. Known to be cholesterol free, these oils are unrefined or unprocessed, free from harmful solvent residues and contain natural antioxidants that are beneficial for the body.

Cold pressed oils are one of Ayurveda’s best secrets. If stored in clay utensils, chekku oil lasts for almost a year. Chekku oil is traditionally supplemented with palm sugar or jaggery, which heightens its flavor and also its nutritional value. Benefits of cold-pressed oils to your heart health and internal well-being are many , these oils can also be a healthier and safer source of nourishment

Art of Cooking Millets

Art of Cooking Millets



All of us are aware of little yellow beads with mild corn flavor and naturally gluten-free with a lovely and light texture when cooked, and relatively quick-cooking because of their small size, but do you know #how to cook Millets perfectly to enhance their right flavor and texture.


Different ways to use millets in the kitchen?
Commonly cooked as a porridge to enjoy in the morning, there are many other ways to use millets. You can toss raw millet into cookies, muffins or quick breads for extra crunch. Use it to thicken soups, or as a base for warm grain salads of your choice. You can also buy millet grits that are extremely quick-cooking, and are wonderful in any preparation.  All the millets are best eaten when they hot or warm after cooking.

But as millets cool they also tend to dry out and it is very difficult to even swallow if the cooked millets get cold. 

So how do you cook Millets perfectly
When preparing millet, toast it in a skillet before adding any liquid to enhance the nutty flavor of the grain. There are two general ways that you can cook it. The first will result in a fluffy, whole-grain side dish much like quinoa and the second way is to use more water (3 cups instead of 2 cups) to result in a creamy, porridge with a polenta-like consistency — great for breakfasts. If you’re going this route, stir it much more frequently. This creamy version is also fantastic because you can pour it into a pan to cool, slice it as you would polenta, and fry it into croquettes or savory squares.

The water used will depend on the consistency and the choice of your recipe.

– If you are cooking millets as a replacement for rice for lunch or to make pulao, and prefer the grains to be separate, the ratio of millet to water is 1:2

– If you want the millets to be soft and not grainy or using them to make khichdi, the ratio is 1:3

– If you are going to make pongal or a thick porridge, then the ratio is 1:4
