Bajra or pearl millet is one of the most underestimated grains these days. Despite it being widely used across the rural India, we city dwellers often fail to contemplate or let alone appreciate the enrichment that is derived from this grain.
Being coarse in texture, Bajra has innumerable benefits that you just cannot count merely on your fingertips. Apart from being an excellent source of energy, Bajra also lowers the level of cholesterol, aids in preventing heart disease, bolsters digestion, work for prevention of cancer et al.
Hence, I always make sure to include Bajra in one or the other form in our diet by making Bajra Methi Poori, Bajre ki Roti, Gujarati Bajre ki Raab and even the fairly new addition in my recipe book: Bajre Ka Halwa.
