Millet porridge is one of the best breakfasts that can be taken on a scorching sunny day during summer as it keeps us cool & energetic all through the day. It is so filling that we don’t require to take anything until lunch. You can check out the link here to know more about various millets, their health benefits and also millet recipes, I found this site on millets very informative. Millet porridge or koozh is usually prepared by cooking millets like varagu, saamai, kudhiraivaali or kambu, ground into a paste (whereas for millets like ragi or thinai the porridge may be prepared by mixing the millet flour with water and bring it to boil) and diluted by adding either milk or buttermilk.
Since rava upma is the easiest meal prepared with commonly available ingredients, it is being served often for breakfast or dinner in most of the south Indian families. Hence people especially children get bored of taking rava upma, but we can make this simple meal interesting, healthier & tastier just by adding a handful of fresh green peas. Rava upma with peas can be enjoyed the most when served warm in the evening particularly during monsoon.
