Sweet Rave Ganji without Milk

If you are looking for a quick and light yet filling vegan breakfast recipe, this one’s for you.

Ganji is a popular breakfast in Karnataka, usually made with millet flour. It has two versions – sweet and savory. Sweet Ganji essentially has milk in it and the savory version has curd or plain yogurt. Since it’s a quick and filling porridge, it makes an amazing breakfast option, especially for busier days.

On days when I feel like eating/drinking something warm and light yet filling, I prefer Ganji. Check out how to make Multigrain Ganji. It doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to make and keeps me full for longer. A great meal option on days when you are feeling under the weather too; some even funnily refer to Ganji as ‘patient’s food’.

This recipe for Sweet Rave Ganji is simple and so easy to make. I have used fine semolina, jaggery, and cardamom to make this but you add milk (regular or vegan) for more flavor.

I hope you try this. Let me know in the comments how you liked it!
