Last Sunday morning we were all bored with our regular breakfasts and wanted something different. After a long discussion and no decision, I told my hubby, ok, I will go into the kitchen and make something different. When he asked, what, I told him I don't know as of now and I really didn't... Once I reached the kitchen I started looking through what ingredients I had at home. My hands stumbled upon this powder we make at home for my 9 month-old son and 84 year-old granny :) And I decided to do something with it and the results were extremely nice.
- Mix the powder with water to get a batter of smooth consistency.
- Add salt, chilli powder and rest of the ingredients.
- Heat a tawa and spread the mixture on the hot tawa.
- Roast on side and then turn and roast the other.
- Enjoy with ketchup or green chutney.
the funda here is the powder... we usually make it the following way...
100 gm ragi (finger millet)
100 gm wheat
100 gm bajra (pearl millet)
100 gm jawar
100 gm corn
100 gm green moong dal
100 gm black gram
handful of almonds
handful of cashew
Wash all the grains and soak them overnight for slight sprouting.
Dry roast them on a low flame and then grind them to a powder.
It's extremely nutritious and my son loves it. For him I usually make it by just cooking it for 5 min with water and later feed him by mixing it with his formula or some curd.
The above is a cumbersome process and if you don't have the time and energy to do so, you can get a similar ready powder in the market (at least in the southern parts of the country it's pretty popular).
