Masala Samai porridge - Little millet Masala Porridge - Millet recipes - Healthy breakfast recipe

If you are looking for something filling and healthy with Millet and with Indian touch then you should try this. This can be good toddler meal option. If you are doing this for kids reduce the amount of green chillies. I have used Little millet for this recipe. However if you prefer you can replace it with Kodo millet or barnyard millet. I haven't tried with Bajra / Pearl or Ragi/ finger millet so far. If you try do let me know the taste. Buckwheat can be used in place of millet too
