Barnyard Millets & Sprouts Briyani
Based on the request of some followers I will be posting some millets recipes which are easy ,healthy and not very common recipe. To begin with, today’s post is “Barnyard Millets & Sprouts Briyani. Barnyard Millets is also called as Kuthiraivali in Tamil
I had replaced ghee with olive oil. Regular vegetables used in any briyani are replaced with moong sprouts to make it more healthy. You can mix and match with vegetables of your choice.
There has always been a fear for many of us to cook millets in claypot with the assumption that they would get stuck easily if over heated. That is not the case actually, it is easy to cook in claypot rather than non-stick or aluminium containers. I have taken the video using a claypot kadai.
