Thinnai/Foxtail Millet Spicy Pongal | Healthy Breakfast



Thinnai/foxtail millet with step by step pictures.

I always have an obsession with millet and I love to try all south Indian recipes with it. I have tried idli/dosa, puttu, idiyappam( string hoppers), khichadi, etc with many millets. Although I love sweet Pongal, kara Pongal is family favorite and all love to have it hot. So I see that I make it during weekends to all to relish it hot.
