We all know that millet flakes are very versatile and many dishes can be prepared as per our imagination very quickly. This is one such recipe which is not only very easy to make but also tastes awesome! The spice powder which I am using in this recipe can be prepared in bulk and stored in fridge for a month.

  • 1 Tsp Urad Dal
