#VaragarisiSundal #KodoMilletSundal : #Varagu - #Varagarisi is called #KodoMillet in English. Kodo millet is called Kodra in Hindi, Arikelu in Telugu and Harka in Kannada. #Millet are highly nutritious and not acid forming foods.

Varagu or Varagarisi { Kodo millet ]

Millet are high in minerals like iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.
I tried Sundal for morning breakfast with Varagarisi adding roasted green gram dhal. This Varagarisi Sundal is tastier than Arisi Sundal.
