Multigrain Porridge

Multigrain Porridge

Porridge is one of the quickest meals you could serve yourself and your family. It’s easy to make, healthy and filling, and perfect to have as a breakfast or brunch along with dry fruits, fresh fruits, or green salad.

Porridge or malt is a popular breakfast in south India, especially in suburban areas. Ragi Ganji or ragi porridge is the most popular type, made using ragi flour and consumed for breakfast. It’s healthy and filling and good to keep you going for a long time. You could use other millet flours to make porridge, like the one in this recipe. I have used organic and homemade multigrain flour, made from around 30 ingredients consisting of different lentils and millets.

Hope you try this recipe!
