Kuthiraivali Pongal Recipe| Barnyard Millet Pongal Recipe

Pongal is one of our favorite breakfast recipes and I used to make it atleast once a week. As I have loads of different varieties of millets in stock, I started trying out recipes using them and its one such recipe. Its a quick recipe and can be prepared for breakfast on busy weekdays. It tasted almost similar to the usual rice pongal. It can be served with coconut chutney and sambar.
