Mixed Millet Porridge Mix


I am back with another healthy recipe post .This Mixed millet porridge mix is easy to make and store. It comes in handy especially when we are short of time. This porridge mix is a must at my place. It can be mixed with hot milk and palm sugar or jaggery and eaten. It can also be mixed with buttermilk and consumed as a coolant in summers when you do not want to sweat in the kitchen.

Millets are small-grained, annual, warm-weather cereals belonging to grass family. They are highly tolerant of drought and other extreme weather conditions and have a similar nutrient content to other major cereals.Millets are consumed widely these days . Millets have high nutritional value.
