A Peep Into the Benefits of Jowar/Sorghum

The ancient grain is a rich source of fiber, so it is a great constipation aid and helps in digestion.
A rich source of calcium, magnesium, and copper, jowar or sorghum is gluten-free and thus an ideal grain for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity issues.
A good source of protein, jowar benefits health in more ways than one - being a complex carbohydrate, jowar aids in digestion, has cholesterol-lowering properties, and is being touted as an aid for fighting free radicals, though more research is needed to substantiate this claim.

Ingredients
2 tbsp of solid cold ghee (refrigerated)
3 tbsp- olive oil (or any other flavorless oil)
1/4 cup- bran(or you may add 2 tbsp of oats extra-as we are already using oats in the recipe)
1/2 cup- jowar/sorghum flour
1/2 cup+1/4 cup- powdered oats
1/2 cup- jaggery
2 tbsp seeds or nuts of choice

We need to teach them that sugar is not that sweet and that less is more when it comes to eating market junk!

So we have decided to start a campaign in schools so that healthy eating habits will generate ineterst in children, upon whom depends the future!

It will help us spread the word about healthy eating and take the movement to every home.

One step at a time.
Our first step begins at a government school in Punjab (district Patiala). Do check out our School Healthy eating campaign here.
So let's come back to the refined sugar free simple cookie recipe:

Add solid (refrigerated) ghee and olive oil to a bowl.
Throw in dry jaggery powder. The idea is to sift jaggery powder and add it to the wet ingredients. Remove any grits.
Whisk it until your shoulders start to pain.
This is your secret to making cookies light and fluffy without raising agents. You will be surprised to see how the magic works.
Next once the wet mix looks pale and fluffy, add 1 tbsp of hung curd (check the recipe to make instant hung curd here) or milk.
Whisk again for 1-2 minutes. This step is critically important.
Next start adding dry ingredients one by one.
Add bran first and fold it into the batter.
Then throw in sorghum flour and fold again.
Next comes the turn of oatmeal. I added in batches - mix one part and then add the remaining too.
Fold again.
NEVER EVER KNEAD cookie dough in my recipes.
If you knead, you are playing a different game altogether that will give you chewy bites. I never aim at getting chewy bites in my cookies. I want them light and crunchy.
So please do as directed.
Now fold nuts or seeds of your choice.
Divide the dough into 2 parts - add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder to one part.
Keep the dough covered at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Then preheat your oven/otg/convection or airfryer to 160 degrees for 10 mts. Airfryer can be preheated for only 5 minutes.
Start taking small pea-sized parts from each dough and join the peas - take 2 each from each dough. Connect one part with another - please check the video for clarity - since we are looking for a unique pattern here, so join the cocoa part with the plain part and again the cocoa to plain and form a ball. Press gently with hands. 
Follow for the remaining dough.
Bake/airfry for 20-25 minutes at 160degrees.
Allow the sorghum cookies to cool down and indulge in the goodness of healthy homemade goodies.
Nothing better than making a batch of simple cookies at home, right?
Pour in your views on the healthy oatmeal cookie recipe.
I am sure your tiny tots would fall in love with these healthy chocolate cookies.

Gluten-free Carrot Almond Cookie Fingers: Refined Sugar Free Baking Without Baking Powder, Soda

Welcome back to another gluten-free recipe. This almond cookie recipe is special because it uses the goodness of carotene-rich carrots, which is converted by the body to Vitamin A - essential for your eye health. Again, the refined sugar-free part makes it even healthier. The gluten-free cookie recipe uses olive oil, with the minimal use of butter or ghee.

OPOS Sambar: Hotel-Style Sambar With No Fuss; Ready in 10 Minutes

Think of South Indian food, and idli, sambar, and dosa would strike your mind first of all! Isn't it?






















Yes, this is the quintessential south Indian menu that has become widely popular world over for its rich taste, unique flavors, and nutritional boost! Well, this is exactly what inspires most of us north Indians to cook south Indian food. I  must admit I love Chettinad cuisine, Malayali food, and of course, Tamil recipes. One thing they have in common is the inclusion of coconut, which makes food more rich and flavorful, though the time of inclusion may vary!

Savor any recipe bursting with coconut flavor and you would want to have it again and again. At least, this is my experience! South Indian food has been instrumental in making me a coconut lover. Don't believe?

Taste food from south Indian cuisine and you would know it yourself. The best thing is south Indians make the most yummiest of food in the simplest of way while not tempering much with the nutritional portion.
