In a pot, take rinsed millet with 2 ½ cups of water and cook it for 15-20 minutes. Make sure to keep checking the millets from time to time. Cook the millets on medium-low heat, and once cooked, set it aside to cool.
After the millets have cooled down, mash them a little with the back of your spoon or your hand. Now add whisked yoghurt, along with other veggies – grated cucumbers, carrots, onions, coriander leaves, and capsicum. Mix it well.
Then add milk and salt to the curd mixture and mix it well. You can also add buttermilk instead of normal milk if you want a healthier version of the dish. Keep it aside.
In a pan, take some oil and add mustard seeds. Let them splutter. Then add urad dal, chana dal, hing, peanuts, red chillies, green chillies, and curry leaves in it. Saute for a few seconds so that the ingredients lose their rawness and are crisp.
Pour the hot tempering into the millet curd rice mixture set aside previously. Mix it well. And voila! your millet curd rice is ready to serve!
