Green chilly - 3 nos.
Coconut - 1 handful
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

Method :

1. Dry roast the pearl millet until u get aroma.but it should not be over roasted.Stop it once the raw smell goes off.Cool it completely.
2. Then run this roasted pearl millet in mixie for about 2 to 3 rounds.All pearl millets are broken now and it will look like rawa.
3. When u have broken it some would have got powdered.We need to remove those powder before we get into cooking.Sieve the broke millets to separate the we have powder and rawa separately.
4. Take a pan, add oil and once the oil is heated add mustard, channa dal, Urad daland fry until dal turns into light brown color.
