Little Millet Daddhojanam

Week 3 Day 1 of BM #57 - 

This week, I have chosen to blog some kid friendly whole grain recipes. To start with, here is my little one's favorite version of daddhojanam aka curd rice. I have used little millet cooked until soft instead of the soft cooked rice used traditionally.

Ingredients - 

Little Millet 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
Yogurt/Curds 1/2 cup + more
Salt as needed
Ginger, grated 1/2 tsp
Carrot, grated 2 Tbsp
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves (I didn't garnish)
Seasoning (Ghee 2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 2 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Jeera 1/4 tsp, Green chilies 2, Curry leaves few, Asafoetida a pinch, Raisins few, Cashews few)

Little Millet Daddhojanam

Method Of Preparation -

Pressure cook the little millet by adding about 2.5 cups of water. After the pressure cooker cools down, transfer the cooked millet into a wide bowl and mash it so that there no lumps.

Add in milk and yogurt. Mix well.

Sprinkle salt, grated ginger and grated carrot.

To prepare the seasoning, heat ghee, add mustard seeds, after they are ready to crackle, add the remaining ingredients in the order listed.

After the dals are brown, transfer the seasoning ingredients into the millet daddhojanam. Mix well and enjoy!
