    I like your blog a lot. I think I went thro’ every entry except the Tamil ones as it takes a little long to read.

    Nice stuff. Keep going.

      Thanks Girish. Do you think the tamil pages are not simple – should I do something about it? If yes please suggest ways to improve it.

    Valuable information about millets, I have always been wondering about them.
    Looking forward towards your research on them and our traditional tamil foods.

      Thanks for visiting my blog. For research and marketing the restore.org.in volunteers have done a tremendous job. I am trying to do my bit by talking about millets wherever possible.

  8. Shoba Lakshmanan says:

    I will be visiting Chennai at 17th February on transit, hope to visit the reStore you mentioned in the blog.

    even i got awareness about millets on seeing makkal tv kaimanam program. but the pocketed millets bought from stroes looks polished like rice. are they look so since it is processed through machines ? will the polished millets have good nutrition value ?

    • ramanchennai says:

      Most of them processed through machines. Unlike rice, these are whole grain, so I feel loss should be very minimal, however I am no expert. At restore you can get hand pounded varagu also. In any case millets like ragi should loose nothing.

  10. Selvi says:

    It wud be great if makkal tv creates a blog for kaimanam program. i sent a mail to you tube kaimanam videos, no response.
