Roast each grain separately till you can smell a fragrant aroma of roasted grain. Each grain needs a different amount of time, so don;t mix them up lest you end up with some under-roasted and some over-roasted and hence bitter grains. Let them cool down and then powder them in a mixie till you get a rava consistency. Grind the grains in batches based on grain size – sama, varagu and korra can go in one batch. Mung and rice in another.
Cook the mixture in a pressure cooker with sufficient water. You will need to check if the cooked mixture has a soft, mashed-up texture. Puree if required.

You can eat it or drink it based on the consistency you like. It has a delicious flavor and is nutritious.
