Rajgira or Amranth flour is gluten free and rich in calcium. We use it during fasting days . It’s very quick to make. If you like to include different grain , seeds in diet then try this . If you are Indian , this is a good sweet to break the wheat , rice routine .
Recipe is simple. You can use coconut oil or ghee or unsalted butter . Traditionally we make it using ghee.
For 1 cup flour , use 1/3 cup ghee and 1/2 cup sugar. I use raw sugar. And 2 cup warm or boiling water .
Heat ghee , roast flour for few minutes until you smell it or color is changed little bit.
Add water and it will be quickly absorbed,
Add sugar and cook for a minute or two.
Garnish with cardamom powder, nuts if you like.
Eat warm. So make, eat and be done . No storing. Make just enough. You can just have this as a meal lunch or dinner.
Saw this recipe on you tube y’day and I had to make it. It was from Nisha Madhulika. Changed recipe little bit with what I had.
Shredded 1 gala apple . Heat ghee or coconut oil and roast apple for few minutes. Add raw sugar.
Add almond flour and after a minute or 2 , frozen shredded coconut that was thawed . You can use any shredded coconut you have . It makes it nice chewy . Cook until it forms like mass . It will be done in few minutes.
Spread some ghee , coconut oil on a dish and spread mixture. Let it cool down and keep it in fridge .
Came out very tasty. You can garnish with more nuts , add cardamom powder.
Navratri has started and so am fasting. Fasting from regular food since it’s not a water fast. Anytime there’s a mention of fast, first question is what do you eat. Funny, it’s it ? Should be Less focus on food.
As weather changes, transition time brings more sicknesses and so fasting helps to cleanse , change energy and get ready for summer or winter.
Any change you make is good Of course if you want to. Skip a meal or 2, skip wheat and rice, become vegetarian for a weak , no alcohol for a week are some of the things you can try. You know what you want to change.
