Cumin seeds (jeera) 1 tbsp
Green chillies 2 tbsp, finely chopped
Asafoetida (hing) ¼ tbsp
Milk ½ cup

Salt to taste

Soak the whole jowar overnight in water. Drain the water in the morning and combine the soaked jowar with one cup of water and salt in a pressure cooker, and pressure cook for five whistles. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep the cooked jowar aside without draining the water.
Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add cumin seeds to it. After a few seconds, add asafoetida, green chillies, red and green capsicum and cook for two minutes on medium flame.
Add a little salt and the cooked jowar with water. Mix well and cook for five minutes. When the water dries, add milk and cook for 2-3 minutes on medium flame.

Finally sprinkle coriander leaves and cook for two more minutes. Serve hot.
