Little Millet / Samai Pepper Pongal
- The little millet may be called little but has loads of nutritional content. The mix includes little millet, moong dal, jeera and peppercorns.
- Little millet is a rich source of B-vitamins, minerals like calcium, iron, zinc, potassium among others. It contains around 5.2 grams of fat with a good content of unsaturated fat that ensures a healthy metabolism and subsequently, a healthy weight loss.
- Its high fibre content is yet another advantage making it an ideal replacement for rice in foods like Pongal or even kheer.
Empty the contents into the pressure cooker, add water in 1:3 ratio (1 Portion Venpongal Mix & 3 Portions water), required amount of salt and let it cook for 3 whistles.
Temper with a tablespoon of ghee, two green chillies and some minced ginger for a lip smacking breakfast.
