Broken Jowar Sambar Bath/Cholam Sambar Sadham

Jowar is a gluten free grain and its an incredible millets, i have been looking for a chance to cook with this grain and finally during my last trip to India i grabbed a packet of broken jowar from an Organic store. Obviously when i picked this organic broken jowar, the first dish came to my mind is Upma. Yes upma is the only dish we can think about when you grab these sort of unique broken grains na. However when i picked 'Wholegrains' as the theme for this week's blogging marathon, i thought of making a different dish from that usual upma. You might have noticed that am running a month of blogging marathon with 4 themes for 4 weeks. After dishing out 6 international breakfast for the first week, i opted for No Onion No Garlic recipes for the second week. And now for the third week, my theme was Wholegrains. After three different dishes with three different wholegrains, i couldnt stop myself to post this incredible sambar bath with broken jowar grains.
