This Healthy Homemade porridge is quite ideal for anyone from a baby to a grandma… Its quite healthy n filling enough for a breakfast.
I have learnt this recipe from my Mother.. and its been passed on from my Grand Mum 🙂
This blog post is for my own reference as I had them written in pieces of paper before coming over to London.
|Whole Wheat||: 1/2 Kg|
|Rice||: 1/2 Kg|
|Moong Dal||: 1/2 Kg|
|Cashew Nuts||: Handful|
|Almonds( Badam)||: 15-20 Nos|
|Peanuts||: 15-20 Nos|
|Cardamon (Elachi)||: 3-4 Nos|
- Dry Roast Wheat , Rice & Moong Dal separately until they turn slightly brown.
- Dry Roast Badam & Cashewnuts too for 2 minutes in low flame.
- Dry roast peanuts for about 3-5 minutes.. We will know peanuts are ready when we rub our hands against the roasted peanuts , the skin will peel off.
- Grind all of them together or separately in batches until the powder is smaller than rava like. Store them in an airtight container.
How do we make the porridge?
For Babies :
Add 2 tsp of the porridge powder in 1 cup of water in a milk pan and cook in low flame for 2-3 min. Make sure to stir a couple of times else its bound to catch at the bottom of the pan. Now add 1 cup of boiled milk and Sugar/ jaggery and cook until the milk condenses to a desired consistency. Transfer the porridge to a serving bowl and serve when warm.
For Adults :
Procedure is quite similiar as above. Need not wait until the milk condenses. Enjoy warm for breakfast!
My grandparents enjoy this for breakfast everyday .They use Jaggery instead of Sugar.I use this porridge for my lil one’s (20 Months old) breakfast couple of times a week and for self too occasionally.
