Kuthiraivaali Khuskha.



A quickest response  which could be made is proved by me (:, i read a recipe in a women’s weekly in the library, took the photo and the same day evening i made it . What a surprise !my husband and kids too liked it (i mean the food ). Well done! i owe credit to the writer and am posting the shot i took . Kuthiraivaali or Barn yard millet is good for health and substituting it for rice is always good. Finding recipes  or creating own ideas is little difficult . I am lucky to get this recipe. It is tasty and simple to make. i made it for dinner but with a simple gravy we can make it for lunch too. Having millets twice a week  is beneficial and it can be noted that Kuthiraivaali rice is  6 times more rich in nutrients than wheat.
