Kuthiraivali Sambhar Sadham (Barnyard Millet - Lentil Rice) - One Pot Dish

Kuthiraivali  Sambhar Sadham (Barnyard Millet - Lentil Rice)

One more Little Millet recipe. I saw this recipe on TV and tried it immediately the next day. Believe me you cannot make out the difference between Rice and Millet. This is a nice way to include more little millet into our diet. I have added whatever vegetables were available in my kitchen.

I have made this in Electric Rice Cooker and open vessel and it comes out well for me. However, when I tried this in cooker, it got burnt. I will try this again in cooker and share my results.

Millets are considered to be very healthy and is highly recommended for Diabetic and weight watchers.
