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).
My m-i-l prepares this one and I used to stock up from her. After getting this recipe, I can now prepare on my own.
My granny has been making this for over 40+ years now. I presented this in a Science exhibition too, as a balanced diet
A very healthy drink.
Thank you for this porridge by in Milk and Butter Milk. This is my long searching recipe which you have provided in detail. It reminds me my childhood when we used always have porridge in the morning.May you good efforts help millions of readers for their needs.
Add some khus khus to this that will also gives u a good taste and it is cool for our body. As it is this makes a very good and tasty dish adding khuskhus will enhance its taste
Can this porridge be given to 10months old baby
No, you cannot give this to babies. I have done a separate post on Porridge for babies
I HAVE A DOUBT BOILED RICE MEANS RAW RICE OR COOKED RICE REPLY ME MADAM
Boiled rice is pulungal arisi (par boiled rice).It is not cooked rice.
hi, i am little confused whether the other three ingredients pearl millet, wheat and green gram are also sprouted and dried or just dry roasted. I am little confused 🙁
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.
Is this porridge good to have for dinner for weight loss or maintain weight?
You can have this for dinner or breakfast.If it is for dinner, have it earlier. I have this for breakfast daily.
CAN WE USE THIS MULTIGRAIN PORRIDGE FOR 1 YEAR BABY
You have separate page for babies.I have given many porridge recipe for babies in that section. Kindly refer that.
Thank you for the recipe. Will this help you lose weight ?
Can u pls tell the quantity of drynginger powder? I don't find whole dry ginger close to my residence.
You can add 1/2 tsp of dry ginger powder.
Thank you very much. I have learnt cooking from the scratch from your website and can't thank you enough. I prepared the porridge mix and it is tasty and quite filling too.
hi padhu ur porridge (sathu maavu powder) was very nice we both liked it so much thank u for sharing with us, can u suggest a porridge for weight reduction for men my hubby wanted to reduce weight.
Was wondering if we can prepare this in microwave?
Yes, you can the porridge in microwave.
Have you ever did that? what is the procedure. I mean how much time should we be microwaving? I am worried about lumps….
I usually do not microwave it but if you want you can. You have to keep stirring in between to prevent lumps.
Hi Padhu. This is nutrition powerhouse drink. Thankyou so much for sharing. Also can this be had during any time of the day?
Yes, any time during daytime. Do not have it at night as it takes time to digest.
Is it fine to have this during pregnancy?
I don't think you will have any problem. You can consult your gynecologist if you have doubts.
Hello mam.. I would like to know whether this porridge helps in weight loss or weight gain.
The best way to loose weight is to exercise. I don't think this will lead to weight loss.
Can I use any other millet instead of pearl millet for multi grain porridge
You can skip that if you do not like it. But don't add these varagu, saamai or kuthiraivali.
What is Sunda Kanji, Padhu? Do you have a recipe for it? Thanks, Dido.
