Millet Cranberry Porridge / Millet Kanji

My twist to the regular millet kanji is that I have added cranberries for extra flavour and health.

Millets have a lot of health benefits. They have high vitamin B content, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron. They are also a good source of healthy fat.

Cranberries' phytonutrients offer antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer health benefits. They are a good source of Vitamin C, fibre, manganese, vitamin E, Vitamin K and copper.
