Recipe Cuisine : South Indian | Recipe Category: Drinks | Serves : 4
Preparation Time: 5 mins  | Soaking Time :  3 hrs | Cooking Time: 15 mins

Ingredients:
Pear Millet
1 cup
For Porridge:

Buttermilk
1 cup
Salt
Required
Chopped Small Onion
Required

Procedure:
Preparation Procedure:
1. Clean and remove the stones from the pearl millet.
2. Wash them thoroughly for 3-4 times. Soak them for 3 hours.
3. Then drain the water completely using the juice strainer. This will take 10 -15 mins.
4. Now make it into a coarse powder using the dry mixie jar. Just pulsing for 3-4 times is enough. You should not grind it into a fine powder.
Method 1 : Direct Method
5. Heat 4 ½ cups of water in a large bowl. When the water starts boiling, keep the flame at simmer. Then add the ground pearl millet flour little by little and mix them quickly without making lumps.
6. After all the flour is added, mix them gently and close the lid of the pan. Cook till the mixture become soft and thick. Mix them occasionally to avoid sticking at the bottom of the pan. This will take 13-15 mins. You should keep the flame at simmer throughout the process.
7. After they are cooked switch off the flame and allow them to cool down completely.

Method 2 : Pressure Cooker Method
8.  Add 5 cups of water in a pressure cooker. When the water starts boiling, keep the flame at simmer. Then add the ground pearl millet flour little by little and mix them quickly without making lumps.
9. Close the lid of the cooker and put the whistle. You can cook for 5-6 whistles in medium flame.
10. Once the pressure has gone, open the cooker lid and mix them gently and allow it to cool down completely.
    In this method the rice sticks at the bottom of the cooker.
Method 3 : Keeping the pan inside the pressure cooker
11. Heat 4 ½ cups of water in a large bowl. When the water starts boiling, keep the flame at simmer. Then add the ground pearl millet flour little by little andmix them quickly without making lumps.
12. Heat enough water in a pressure cooker, keep the pan (from 11) inside the pressure cooker. Cook for 6-7 whistle in medium flame.
13. After pressure has gone, take the pan from the cooker and mix them gently. Allow it to cool down completely.
How to store the cooked rice?
14. After the rice has cooled down completely, make apple size balls from the rice and keep it in a bowl. Add enough water to immerse the balls in the water.
15. Keep it one day at room temperature; otherwise you can refrigerate it for 3-4 days.
How to make Kool?
16. Wherever you want to make kool, take required balls and add enough water. Mix them well with ladle.
17. Add required salt, buttermilk and chopped onion. Mix them well and serve.

      Serve it with raw mango pickle or moor milaga.
