Its been raining in Chennai from midnight and the weather is soo comforting,thank God for the lovely climate.Coming to the recipe ,this porridge is so easy to make within 10-15 mins and don't need a extra side dish to accompany this.We ate it as like that,if u prefer u can have some hot pickles to it.

  • samba wheat rava- 1\4 cup
  • Split yellow moongdal- 2 tbsp
  • Garlic pods- 4(peeled)

1.Take raw rice in the mixer/pulser and pulse in for few seconds,now u get broken rice.
