Reader's Post - Menthya Hittu

Blogging has given me many friends, appreciation e-mails from reader's which encourage me to blog more and more. Many of you write to me asking whether or not they can send me their recipes to be published. The answer is YES, but I would definitely try them in my kitchen before I publish them on TOM. All recipes published on TOM are approved for their taste by my family members and I appreciate their co operation in this regard.

This recipe was sent by one of my Singapore reader and friend. Many thanks Ibbani for this healthy recipe. Menthya hittu is a medley of 4-5 different types of pulses flour. The resulting cocktail powder is a protein rich powder which is good for health. Here is how Ibbani makes menthya hittu ..
