Millets-They have occupied my kitchen to a huge extent. I experiment with them in every possible way from simple/old pongal to baked goodies like cakes/cookies/muffins. The best part of this is our family has become used to this and we have millets at least thrice in a week.Today’s recipe is a simple ven pongal with millet(varagu/thinai/saamai/pani varagu) in pressure cooker.I have already posted a sweet pongal recipe with millet and our traditional pongal cooking.
