I made it in the usual way of making sambar sadam but substituted it with millets. It is an easy one-pot recipe that gets ready in 30 minutes. I always use an equal amount of rice and dal for this recipe and it yields the best results. This is mild spicy perfect for kids. You can add any vegetables of your choice and serve them along with chips or appalam.
