How to cook Indian millets

9:26 PM Chandra Karthikeyan 0 Comments

Indian millets (varugu, kuthiravalli, thinai, saamai) are healthy replacement for rice. You can serve this cooked millet just like rice with sambar, rasam, curry and so on. Here i have used varugu.
  • Varugu - 1 cup
  • Water - 3 cups
  • Salt as required
  • Dry roast millet for 2 minutes, then add water and salt. Keep the heat on high.
  • When it start boiling, reduce the heat to low and close the cooking pan with the lid. 
  • It takes around 12 to 15 minutes to cook. If you think millet sticking to the bottom, give a stir, otherwise keep the lid closed.
  • Let the millet rest for 10 to 20 minutes more before serving.
  • Serve this cooked millet with sambar and curry.
