Saamai Thayir Sadam / Little Millet Curd Rice – Simple Lunch Recipes
 
 
Samai Thayir Sadam / Little Millet Curd Rice, a perfect lunch option to beat the summer. Instead of regular white rice, i have tried this with Little Millet. You can try this with any millet rice varieties.
I dont have any special likings for curd rice. Even in marriages or any other functions, i try to avoid this rice and better go with kara kuzhambu or vathal kuzhambu. I always keep looking for something spicy to keep my tummy filling. I got this millets recipes book from an organic store. While i was looking for something to try, i got the recipe for Kambu Thayir Sorru. Instead of Kambu, i tried it with Samai. This tastes even better than normal Curd Rice. Lets check the recipe,
