Pearl Millet (Kambu/Bajra) Koozh and an Award

Kambu Koozh is an extremely healthy dish famous in South India. Kambu is rich in Vitamin B6, folic acid, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and zinc. This koozh helps in reducing the body heat. When a simple dish can do it all, what more do we need for a healthy life??? :) Happy making :)

I will be on a vacation for the next 10 days :) But going to miss my blog and fellow bloggers a lot.. :(

Anyways will try to be back with a bang once I return. ;)


Pearl Millet(Kambu) - 1 cup
Water - 3 cups
Butter Milk
Salt - for taste
Onion - 1


Wash and dry the peral millets for an hour. Now powder it coarsely in mixie.
Dilute the powder in 1 1/2 cups of water. Boil the remaining water and add the diluted mixture to it mixing it well not allowing lumps to be formed. Now keep mixing it until it becomes thick. Now place this vessel in the cooker and cook it for 3 whistles. After it cools down add butter milk and salt to it.

Serve this with raw chopped onions.
:) Its a very yummy drink.

You can have the cooked bajra rice with some sugar and ghee too. :)

Enjoy with this healthy drink this summer. :)

Now for the award

I should really thank Prathibha and Sailaja for their encouragement. :) This lovely award makes me feel so happy and proud. Will try my best to stand up to it always. :) Thanks again.

Now I would like to pass this to few people.
