Barnyard millet upma recipe (Kuthiraivali in Tamil / Jhangora in Hindi / Odalu in Telugu / Oodalu in Kannada) was the first millet recipe I tried in my kitchen. But posted thinai paniyaram first. This upma is very easy and basic to cook, can start with this if you are new to millets. Need not worry that cooking millet is complicated. Its really easy and not tricky at all. This tastes similar to arisi upma. You can make it same way as no onion and without vegetables too. But I added veggies. Even bachelors can try this. This is a healthier option for rice upma coz of its nutritional values - improve metabolism of our body. Good for diabetics too. It is rich in calcium, phosphorous, iron and rich in fibre content. When cooked, it gives a lot of volume. Keeps you feel full for long time too.
Serve hot with any spicy coconut chutney or even sugar. I had with peanut chutney.
