How To Make A Savory Millet Parfait?
SAVORY MILLET PARFAIT- A SIMPLE & HEALTHY MILLET BASED BREAKFAST IN A JAR.
This savory millet parfait jar is inspired by Kambu Koozh, an everyday breakfast ritual in so many households across Tamil Nadu. Kambu koozh is basically a savory porridge made with pearl millet flour and yogurt. This is then served with an assortment of trimmings that include sun dried chilies, shallots and fryums.
While i love kambu koozh, i m always looking for newer ways to incorporate our traditional foods in tune with the modern ways of eating. This savory millet parfait in a jar is an attempt to do just that. I bought pearl millet flakes a while ago. I tried making upma with it but i did not like it. It turned soggy and was so not my kind of upma.
I made a sweet parfait using these millet flakes and simply loved it. But a sweet breakfast is not my cup of tea either. And then, i was on the phone with my mom and she kept telling how kambankoozh stalls had cropped up everywhere. That was the point when i decided to make this savory millet parfait in a jar. The ingredients are very simple. And it takes less than 15 mins to put together.
