#SamaiMethyPancake : I recently made cooked rice coriander pancake. Following the same method I prepared samai methy pancake and the outcome was a very tasty and healthy green pancake.
#SamaiArisi is a millet and it is known as #LittleMillet in English.
I have done many experiments with this millet and prepared some interesting dishes.
Here we will see one more recipe with samai. I have included methy to make it more nutritious and rich in fiber. Methy is called venthaya keerai in Tamil and fenugreek leaves in English.
