STOVETOP MILLET CAKES – These cakes are like thick pancakes. They make a full meal, served with tomato sauce or Salsa, steamed vegetables and a mixed salad. Other vegetables may be substituted for the zucchini. Serves 4 to 6.
2 cups millet
1 liter water
A pinch of salt
1 1/3 cups chopped zucchini
1 tsp grated lemon zest
3 tbsp whole wheat flour
2 tbsp oil
7 ounces firm tofu, crumbled
Place the millet in a large pan with the water and salt.
Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Add the zucchini, bring back to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes longer. Leave to cool.
When cold, mash the millet and zucchini.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir to make a thick batter, adding a little water if necessary.
Heat a lightly oiled, large skillet. Cook two or three cakes at a time; for each one, place a handful of millet mixture into the the pan and press it down with a wet metal spatula.
Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Keep warm.

Love knows no fear. – Sri Swami Sivananda
Love knows no reward. Love unconditionally. – Sri Swami Sivananda
ADHARMA – against Dharma, that what ought not be done.
That which elevates you and brings you nearer to God is Dharma. That which takes you down and away from God is Adharma. That which is done in strict accordance with the injunctions of the Sastras is right (Dharma), and that which is done against the injunctions of the Sastras is wrong (Adharma). This is one way of defining these terms.
To work in accordance with the Divine Will is right (Dharma); to work in opposition to the Divine Will is wrong (Adharma).
When you love God, you love everything. – Sri Swami Sivananda
