I've grown up eating millet and rice rotis for breakfast and dinner, never really had any clue all the dishes I enjoyed eating as a kid was gluten free. My travel career challenged me with so many clients with gluten allergy many of them are from abroad and few locals, I really did not have many options to pick and choose or even suggest them a product they could purchase and use, the gluten free ready to cook product market is less in India compared to west, The few millet dishes are prepared only at home or handful of local restaurants, options for gluten free diet is alien to many of us. I personally felt Somey's kitchen is bridging the gap and introducing all new range of gluten free options for local consumers.
Recently my family doctor also opened up on this subject and has advised us to switch to healthier gluten free diets which helps reduce blood sugar levels and also helps build stamina. Slowly but surely the trend for gluten free diet is picking up, time was right when my PR contacted me to test Somey's kitchen products. We liked the products since we are used to millet taste and texture both the poori and chapati was perfect for us. Suggestion for first time taste testers, a spicy pickle or chutney is a must along with roti; it takes time to adjust to the texture.
I have also posted three different variations of paratha using somey's whole wheat chapati please click here for the recipes...
