Kambam Choru

- Submitted by Dahlia on 20th June 2014

(Kambam Choru, Bajra Baath, Kambu Sadam, Boiled Pearl Millet)


Bajra also known as 'Pearl Millet' used to be one of the widely available grains half a century before. Last few decades it lost its popularity and people opted for more easily available grains like rice and wheat. Nowadays millets are coming back into the markets due to its health benefits. People with diabetes, high cholesterol etc are trying to include more and more millets into their diet.

Today I want to share a very old Pearl millet recipe called "Kambu Sadam" or "Kambu Choru".

Ingredients

  • Pearl Millet - 1 cup
  • Water - 2 1/2 cups
  • Salt - to taste

Method

  1. Wash the pearl millet once or twice. Soak it in 1 cup of water for about 15 minutes.
  2. Pulse it in the mixie or food processor a few times so that the grains break down. This step is optional but speeds up the cooking process.
  3. Take the broken millet, remaining 1.5 cup water and salt in a pressure cooker. Cook for 4-5 whistles. Let the pressure go off naturally. It takes a little longer to cook than rice.

Serving Suggestion

  • Kambu sadam or kambu choru is ready to serve with any pickles or curry of your choice. People looking for healthy alternatives to rice can try this with your favorite curry. In our house we enjoy it with fish curry.

Tips

  • If you do not have a pressure cooker, you can cook it in an open pot but it will take a long time.
