It blazing hot here and at this time of the year it only natural to wish for something cool to quench the thirst.This porridge fits the bill in more than one way.It is very easy to prepare and need just a few ingredients.So there is no need to be looking out for ingredients or slog in front of the oven.
I have adapted this from Priya’s recipe. I loved the texture of this porridge. It was very filling and cooling. I have been making this often.
This is my third post Blogging Marathon #52, Week 1,Day 3 under the theme – Creamy dishes.And also sending this to Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight event, hosted this month by Mir, themed- Creamy foods.

  • You can use any millet of your choice.
  • If making it for breakfast, cook the millet, add water and let it sit overnight .In the morning blend it with other ingredients and serve.
  • I made blended this to a creamy consistency. If you want a thinner consistency,add more yogurt / water.
  • Adjust water quantity according to how you usually cook the millet of your choice.
