Samai Ulundu Kanji Recipe - Little Millet and Urad Dal Milk Porridge Recipe

Porridge / Kanji takes place atleast once in a week in my house. Normally it will be ulundu kanji or this wheat ulundu kanji. But I made this porridge yesterday and i loved it so much. Its been a while since i posted any millets recipes and many people has started asking me. I have already posted millets porridge before and this one is made with only samai. When i had this, i didn't miss my normal rice milk kanji and it tasted so yummy. You can have it with this thoran..
