Before a fortnight or so, we visited my mom’s at Jhansi. Along with the visit, I even planned an itinerary to visit Khajuraho and the nearby places.
Not only did this entire trip rejuvenate me but it even gave me a chance to relish some of the best dishes made by my mommy dear!
And it was fun to gorge on the aforesaid piping hot dishes because it was super chilled there at Jhansi.
To add to the above my mom served us Bajre ki Raab, which I yesterday prepared again at home to beat all the cough and cold that the weather change had inflicted on me!
Bajre ki Raab or Rabri is a warm, soothing soup made using bajra flour (pearl millet flour), dry ginger powder, jaggery, ajwain and loads of ghee in Rajasthan and Gujarat.
Not only does it enhance our immunity but Bajre ki Raab also cures the loss of appetite, provides energy and is also recommended to pregnant women.
Upon that this Raab being sweet, warm and of nice texture relaxes the throat like nothing else.
You can even make a savory version of this raabdi recipe. Skip adding jaggery and add salt instead.
So, do go through this interesting recipe and make sure to try it out to make this winter subtly warm and comforting.
