Kodo millet (Tamil: Varagu; Hindi: Kodra; Telugu: Arikelu; Kannada: Harka). I have posted few millet recipes and with varagu, I posted varagu kanji and varagu adai. This varagu pulav is one I tried latest to add on to the millet recipes. Thanks to Abhirami for the idea for this recipe. When she handed over the millets, she was kind enough to share few recipes too and this is one among those. Yet a lot of millet recipes and ideas are yet to line up every friday, so stay tuned for the healthy recipes using millets. If you are in Singapore and looking for buying millets, you can contact Bhairavi Naturals. Its organic too!
I was bit doubtful to try this, but when I finished cooking and opened the cooker, I was so happy to see the fluffy pulao. And taste wise, no compromise as well when compared to the regular pulao. So if you are looking for different ways to include millets in you cooking, this is one to start with.
Serve hot with onion raita. Fluffy, tasty, flavorful pulao
