If you are searching for a easy breezy, quick, healthy and definitely a satisfy breakfast for a hurry morning, then you should take a look at this easy porridge. Kuthiravali/Barnyard millet is one among my favourite millet which i never forget to get from India, and i have few packets in my pantry to make delicious foods out of it. If you are my regular reader you might know that am not a breakfast person, obviously i try to skip breakfast but since we started our low carb diet, i couldnt skip the breakfast and trying to take millet based foods in the morning. One of my favourite breakfast or else brunch is this barnyard millet porridge.

Barnyard Millet Porridge, Kuthiravali Kanji

If you are using pressure cooker, this porridge takes hardly less than 15minutes to get ready and trust me this porridge makes an excellent filling meal. Served along with a spicy gravy or pickle, this porridge tastes simply awesome. With less efforts and less ingredients, your healthy breakfast is ready to have. If you dont have barnyard millet, you can replace it very well with quinoa, or else with any other wholegrains. I prepared this porridge as a vegan friendly dish, if you want you can add buttermilk or milk to this porridge.This porridge are going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running Healthy diet/Diabetic diet as theme.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#60.
