  1. You can use any millet, quinoa or any rice.
  2. Make sure to cook rice / millet so that each grain is separate.
  3. You can add a tsp of jaggery if you wish. Its a personal preference. 
  4. We dot use dry spice powders here other than garam masala. So adjust the green chilli as per your family's preference.
