  • 1 cup pearl millet I used broken kambu
  • 3.5 cups water
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • salt to taste

For sidedishes:


  • Rinse the kambu well and transfer to pressure cooker and add water and pressure cook in low medium flame for 3-4 whistles in low medium flame.
  • Once pressure releases, open and switch on the flame.
  • Keep stirring till it becomes thick enough to roll into a ball. Let it cool down for few mins, then roll them into balls.
  • Place the kambu balls in a bowl containing water till immersing level. Let it rest for an hour (you can leave it overnight in the fridge too), you can refrigerate it.
  • Then mix it well. I used my whisk for this. Mix well without any lumps.
  • Then add buttermilk, required salt and give a quick stir.
  • Serve Kambu Koozh with raw onion or vadams or pickle of your choice.


  • If you have whole kambu, then sprinkle little water over it and leave it for 15 mins then grind it in a mixer to make it coarse...just 2-3 pulse is enough
