Rewinding my life back a month, I was quite unfamiliar to these cereals that are way too tiny in size but loaded with maximum proteins and minerals. I had no clue at all about so called millets and the positive effects that make on our health. Am I living in a isolated, remote city of the world?? I wonder.
I was watching a cooking show in a TV channel where it’s been showcased about millets and their impact on our health as a substitute of rice or wheat. I understood about millets and the various ways it can be part of our day to day food life. And you know what, my quest to cook these millets in most amazing and delicious form triggered out. My trip to supermarkets in search of tiny cereals began all in all, but till last week I had no luck finding any. Yesterday, my joy knew no bounds when I found all types of millets neatly arranged in a shelf of Mall out of which kodo millet and barnyard millet have took place in my cart.
Kodo millet pongal is the first and easiest one pot meal that I tried my hands on. The pongal was overwhelmingly seductive and never even felt that I am eating something new and unique cereal. Kodo millet has already won our hearts in taste with health being it’s bonus gift.
While making kodo millet pongal, I cooked the millets and lentils separately in a pressure cooker and then combined everything in a seasoning to a porridge consistency. You can even cook both of these together in cooker itself. Let’s step up from health perspective through the use of millet goodness in our lives. Kodo millet pongal => you win.
