Saamai Sambar Sadham / Little millet Sambar Sadham


Sambar sadham, I usually prepare when I prepare lunch for just me and my boy...It will be easy for me to prepare and at same time healthy for him to eat too...Little millet cooks even faster than our normal rice...It tastes so good as sambar sadham...We can have it to our heart's content, since it's easily digestible than rice..So perfect for small kids too..I'm preparing this recipe under guilt free indulgence for Blogging Marathon #53 hosted by srivalli...
