Suji Faraha

Eat healthy go healthy… This recipe is a mixture of many ingredients and each of it have its unique health benefits,  it comprises of lentils as well as vegetables basically its a transformation of traditional Farah prepared using rice flour,  it’s a little twist as prepared using semolina (suji) because it becomes bit difficult to get rice flour all the time and eating too much of it is not beneficial for health so I have replaced it with suji and a tadka of vegetables.
