Chocolate Kodo Millet Pudding

I love adding millets in our diet atleast twice or once a week and am keeping it as a routine. Recently one of my Fb friend shared a link about the health benefits of the millets while an another friend shared how its not healthy to include the millets daily in our diet. However anything with moderation is good for health rite, obviously i dont want to go inside a debate. Adding millets in our diet is definitely an interesting one,which will limit the intake of rice. As always i couldnt kept myself getting few bags of organic millets from India and i have couple of millets at home to cook with. As i told earlier, my life is getting very much busy, am trying to keep posting atleast three dishes every week in my space though its quite hard to cook and click with my hectic schedule. Somehow being this much busy is very thrilling too and am loving it.

One of my recent try with millet is this Pudding, actually we kick started few events we kept aside for few months, one among those events is Shhh Cooking Secretly, started by myself and now the event is taken by Mayuri Patel of Mayuri's Jikoni, my partner of this month's event is Poornima of Poornima's cookbook. She gave me millets and chocolate as secret ingredients and i cooked this alluring pudding with bit coarsely grounded kodomillet aka varagu arisi and chocolate bar, trust me this pudding came out absolutely incredible and we loved it.Also am sending this pudding to this week's theme of blogging marathon as am running Kid's delight-Cooking with wholegrains as this pudding was approved delicious by my kids.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#57.Sending to Srivalli's Kid's delight - Cooking with Wholegrains hosted by Kalyani.
