    Red Sorghum 1 cup
    Green gram ( i used split green gram) 1/2 cup
    Jalapeno 1 or 2 to taste
    Onion 1/2 small
    Oil 1-2 tsp
    Asafetida 1/4 tsp
    Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp


These grains take longer to cook. Be patient. This tasted really delicious specially considering simplicity of ingredients.

cooking and preparation times may very depending on the method of cooking used.


1.Cook Sorghum in a pressure cooker. The number of whistles can differ with every cooker design. A rough idea is to make 3 or 4 times more whistles that what you use when you cook white rice. These grains require longer to cook. Water used while cooking will also vary. I used 2 cups water for 1 cup sorghum.
Overnight soaking will reduce the cooking time. Once cooked, drain excess water if any.

2. Boil the green gram separately in a saucepan till it is cooked. Care should be taken not to over cook. We want the green gram to hold its shape. Soaking will help reduce the cooking time for the green gram too. Drain excess water if any.

3.Heat Oil. Add asafetida and mustard seeds. Add onions after mustard seeds begin to pop. While the onions are cooking, add grated jalapeņo. Add the sorghum and green grams once the onions are cooked. Cover and let it steam for 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped coriander and top it with fresh lemon juice. Yum.
