Saamai Coconut Rice Recipe - Thengai Sadam using Little Millet

I love coconut rice..Amma makes it often for lunch on weekdays, since it is so easy peasy to make..Actually it taste so great as it is..So you don’t need any side dish with this..If you want some thing to go also with this, you could make Potato Roast.

I made it yesterday but i used saamai rice to make it, since it is so healthy. It turned out so delicious, even hubby loved it so much.You can cook millets  using this method as well.

I hope you love this and let me know what you think..
