Millet Yogurt Bhath / Thinai Arisi Thayir Sadham

Thinai Thayir Sadham
Today's recipe is simple and comfort meal with Millet/Thinai Arisi and Curd, thinai arisi thayir sadham. I like millet substitute for rice than oats and brown rice. Millets get cooked fast and also tastes great than brown rice. So alternative days i cook millet for me as plain and have it with any side dish. Sometimes i like to make masala bhath, sambar sadham and this curd bhath. This thinai arisi thayir sadham is one quick one pot meal, healthy and filling too. Here i used fox tail millet but you can try the same recipe with other millets like little millet/kodo millet/barnyard millet.

    Adding sambar onions gives nice flavor and crunch to thayir sadham but if you don't like you can skip it.
