Same (Little Millet) Payasa/ Pudding

Little Millet is known as " Same, ಸಾಮೆ " in Kannada/Karnataka's official language. Little Millet is one of the healthy millet. I have tried "Little Millet Payasa/Kheer"  and it is a healthy dish I can say.

Payasa  /Kheer is prepared on special days like festivals, feast or get together parties.
I have used Little Millet, jaggery and coconut. 
Let us see some benefits of having " Raisins in our diet".
Raisins are packed with nutrients and full of minerals and vitamins. They are rich in B vitamins, iron and potassium. Raisins are good source of carbohydrates. They are full of fiber and benefits the people who suffer from constipation. They are good for people who are weak and suffering from anemia, fever and good for weight gaining. Raisins are good for eye health, dental care and bone health. They are good for reducing the hypertension and control diabetes.
Same (little millet) Payasa is nice to have as a desert, or even for breakfast. Little millet is one of the best millet to make use and be fit.

Let us see the recipe.

Things needed :

Same /Little Millet : 3/4 Cup
Jaggery : 1/2 Cup

1. Wash and  pressure cook same /little millet for 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Grate coconut and grind it with little water and squeeze out the thick milk and keep the milk aside.

Note :

Let same cook nicely. It helps same to mix with coconut milk nicely. I have used organic jaggery. If you are using market bought jaggery, melt jaggery completely and then sieve it with strainer and then add then use clean jaggery. Adding more or less jaggery is optional. You can grind coconut with little water and a spoon of soaked raw rice till paste and then you can add it to boiling payasa mixture. ( Instead of coconut milk). Remember to use fresh and moisture coconut for payasa. Adding nuts according to your taste.
Time : 30 Minutes.
