Step by Step method

  • Preparation Method:

  • 1. Wash little millet rice and cook it in a pot with salt. Cover and continue to cook until 90% rice is properly cooked.

  • 2. Drain excess water and allow the rice to cool completely. If there are lumps in the rice, then break the lumps once the rice is cooled.

  • 3. Heat oil in a pan. Reduce the heat to medium. Crackle mustard seeds first in the hot oil.

  • 4. Add curry leaves, bengal gram dal, and black gram dal. Stir and fry for about a minute.

  • 5. Then add green chilli and cashews. Stir and fry until the cashews turn golden. The lentils would also turn golden by then.

  • 6. Stir and fry until the curry leaves become crisp.

  • 7. Now add grated coconut. Mix very well.

  • 8. Sauté the coconut for 2 to 3 minutes until it gets a creamish color.

  • 9. Lastly, add the steamed millet rice.

  • 10. Combine and mix the rice well. Cook for another 3-4 minutes on low flame. Switch off the flame and serve.
