Cornmeal Puttu with Sweet Sundal

I feel it is more beneficial to take cornmeal than cornflakes for breakfast, so I prefer to make gluten-free cornmeal puttu and protein-rich green gram sundal for breakfast. Puttu is usually prepared using rice flour, but you may refer the table below to find out how cornmeal serves good for making puttu.

Millet Pongal

Millet pongal is a healthy hearty dish that can be served for breakfast. Since millets are used in this pongal, the pongal is slowly digested & absorbed and hence the slower or smaller rise in blood sugar levels. Millet pongal may be simply served with spicy coconut chutney, and it does require to serve this with sambar, so we can prepare this breakfast in a jiffy. Besides we can also serve this pongal with sambar, or vegetable gothsu.

Millet Kichadi

Millet Kichadi is our family’s favorite breakfast. Generally I prepare this nutritious kichadi when my son preparing for his exams as it helps to keep him fresh & focused during his exam even though he had not slept well the previous night.

Hence millet kichadi is the perfect breakfast for active children & busy professionals to keep them energetic all through the day.

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 till the lunch. The millet I used here is a flavorful protein-rich pearl millet (kambu).
