  1. Hi VV

    I tried this recipe yday and found that it is very dry to eat.. each time my Millet rice recipes turns dry.. can you please help point me the mistake


    1. Hi Ramya,
      May be your grains need more water. Try adding 1/4C more for a cup of millets. Or soak longer. This may solve your problem.

      1. I will try the idea of adding lil more water VV..any recipes which involves millets turning mushy works well when I do the ven Pongal or bisibelabath..but when it requires a correct cooked state like pulav,it flops..I will try and let you know..thank you
