Bajra Porridge - Healthy porridge recipe with bajra/kambu. Nutritious porridge for babies and toddlers.
- Bajra Flour/Kambu Maavu - 1/4 cup
- Dates - 3
- Raisins - 5
- Powdered palm Jaggery or jaggery - 1 tbsp optional
- Water - 2 cups
- Cardamom powder - a pinch
- Ghee - 1 tsp
Keep all the ingredients ready. soak dates and raisins in warm water for at least 10 minutes. Measure jaggery (if using) and keep aside. I used organic jaggery without impurities, melt jaggery and strain water if using jaggery with impurities. After 10 minutes,in a blender grind soaked dates and raisins together to a fine paste by adding little water.
In a saucepan, take the bajra flour and add dates raisins paste and crushed or powdered cardamom. Add water and mix well without any lumps.
Now cook everything in a low flame for 5 minutes or until the bajra gets cooked well. Stir it continuously otherwise it gets stick to the bottom. Adjust with water if it's getting too thick.
Once the bajra flour is cooked, add powdered palm jaggery or palm jaggery syrup (if using). Mix well and cook until the porridge consistency is reached and the nice aroma comes. It may take 5 minutes. Once done, add ghee if desired and switch off the flame.
