  1. Hi , can anyone tell me indian name for teff….or what can I use instead of teff flour (used in Ethiopia dish)
    Thanks 🙂

  2. Hello Amit Dasanna,
    It has been long since I commented on your blog. However, not a single new dish I make unless I visit your blog. Do you know what do we call Rye in any Indian language.
    thank you,
    Sandy

  3. I read it that In india, Rabi crops are:
    1. Wheat
    2. Barley
    3. Oats
    4. Chickpea
    5. Linseed
    6. Mustard.
    Can u tell me what is Oat and Barley called in Hindi?

  4. I am having a hard time finding english names for the following pulses/cereals please help:
    a. Moong
    b. Udad/Orid
    c. Vatana (those green colored dry, hard rounded shaped cereals….I guess india imports it from canada cz on the bags its inscribed that its from canada)

  5. I don’t think Bajra and Jowar are tamil words…we in Maharashtra have been using these words to refer to Pearl Millets and Sorghum respectively. I suspect these are Hindi or Marathi words

  6. thanks for your such a wonderfu page..:-) I usually try dishes from your page. plz make category for gluten free dishes for main course; bcoz my husband has severe allergy from gluten and for past few years he has suffered alot. If you do so it will be very helpful for me ..ones again thank you so much god bless you.

    • thanks krishna ji. i already have a category of gluten free food. its displayed on all the pages. what i will do is i will add it in the top menu bar. just a reminder. i don’t know if you are aware of that asafoetida/hing has wheat particles in it. so skip it completely. a few readers had informed me about this and then checked online too. here’s the link of the gluten free category – https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/recipe/gluten-free/
