Kambu Curd Rice Recipe / Pearl Millet Curd Rice Recipe - Millets Recipes


I have been hunting for good recipes using millets. I wanted to make any simple lunch recipes using millets so we can include it in our lunch. Finally landed on sharmi's page. I found this curd rice quite interesting. I made it and it was so comforting and totally different from my normal curd rice.
