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. Curd rice is one of my all time favourite, i have already made it with pearl millet..So i decided to try it with this barnyard millet as well, I made it and it was so comforting..
