சாமை தயிர் சாதம் / Little Millet Curd Bhath / Sama Perugu Annam

Samai / Little Millet unlike white rice are loaded with minerals, fiber and easy to digest.It also lowers the risk of diabetes
I got this recipe from a TV Show but then modified it using some more ingredients
Use "full cream curd and milk" while preparing for "children".In contrast use "skimmed curd and milk" for "weight watchers"
I have already shared a similar recipe using Barley Dalia.Check out for the same in this link Barley Curd Bhath
