Millet Porridge

Millet porridge is one of the best breakfasts that can be taken on a scorching sunny day. It keeps us cool,  fresh & energetic all through the day. It is so filling that you don’t require anything till lunch. The millet I used here is pearl millet or kambu. Pearl millet is a flavorful protein-rich millet.
