But now a days, we are not having healthy food. Having fast foods leading a lot of diseases like diabetics and heart problems in early ages. At least once in a week, if we prepare some dishes using millet, we will be getting more strength. Today, I tried a tasty and popular biriyani recipe using Kodo millet.(Varagu arisi in Tamil). Making this biriyani is very easy and it taste same like normal biriyani. I am not adding any vegetable in this dish. If we want, we can add vegetables or meat. Kodo millet is having a lot of fiber in it. Also having more nutritional values like protein and vitamins. I’m very glad to share this healthy and tasty biriyani using healthy Millet Varagarisi.
