The last 2-3 days have been really very busy, with my little one having a severe bout of Flu. Life comes to a standstill when he is unwell.So cooking had to take a backseat.
For a quick breakfast yesterday I had Oats and puffed Rajgirawith buttermilk.
Puffed Rajgira (top) and Oat Bran
I could find a packet of Oat Bran (Bagrry’s) thanks to the Reliance Fresh outlet here.
Rajgira also known as Ramdana is the seed of the Amaranth plant. It is usually consumed during fasts since it belongs to the non-cereal category. These ‘poppy seed look alikes’ have enormous nutritive significance and is the local nutraceutical.
Puffed Rajgira is readily available here and we also make chikki (sweet bar) or Ladoos from it. Its flour is also used for making parathas.
Rajgira and Oat Bran put together in buttermilk and flavoured with mint-my quick and healthy breakfast recipe.
