Multigrain Porridge - Porridge Recipe - Kanji

Multigrain Porridge Recipe - Kanji

My Dear friends, I am glad to inform you that Padhuskitchen has won the Bread Event organized by Chaitra  I got a lovely book on Kerala dishes for winning the event.



Today I am sharing with you my morning drink - it is a power packed drink which gives me the energy to be active the whole day.I know preparing this porridge powder is a bit time consuming process but worth the effort. If you are going to try it for the first time, then prepare it with lesser quantity.Since we have sprouted ragi, pearl millet, green gram and wheat, it further increases their nutritional value.This drink is very good especially for growing children and women. It helps in boosting immunity also.

  20. Dear Padhu
    Congratulations on winning this great award!!!
    I feel good that you liked my blog on Tiger Prawns. I try to make the blog bit humorous...
    Of course I know you are a vegetarian. I always try to put a vege or vegan option. I read more Vege dishes than non-veg...vege dishes are extremely difficult to cook..so I learn a lot from the blog.
    Have a nice week.

  38. To truly make this 100% healthy, the wheat may need to be removed as it is mostly genetically modified. (Rice could be replaced by brown rice too).

    1. Pearl millet,wheat and green gram should also be sprouted, dried and then roasted. That is why I have written -repeat the same process for the these three also. Hope it is clear for you now.
