Yummy Millet Recipe – Sakkarai Pongal For Kids Of All Ages

by slurrp

Why just restrict our Pongal recipes to limited grains? Boiling rice and milk together in an earthen pot or using only sugarcane, and turmeric, because that’s what this 4-day long celebration is all about? 

Well! Let’s amp it up a little, no, a lot! 

We are definitely taking a very-very traditional route but steering clear of rice. Here is a millet recipe with the goodness of Jowar (Sorghum), Kangni (Foxtail Millet) and Oats. Check out this easy yummy millet recipe which can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. Ideal toddler snack, and a healthy recipe for growing-up children! You can add a dash of jaggery and lots of nuts to fulfill the nutritional needs of those small and big tummies.
