A little bit of my love for khari history

Four years ago, I started to bake cookies, cakes, rusks, biscottis, and puffs. Jeera puffs were one of my favorite purchases in my favorite bakery -Kwality bakers. I wanted to try these lip-smacking puffs for a long time. I must tell you whole wheat croissants have been a favorite with my younger brother as well :) Today, was the day when I did attempt them - though bakeries and confectionery shops use maida (all purpose flour/refined flour) and dalda ghee, I never bring these home. Rather, prefer to bake anything with whole wheat flour, besan (chickpea flour), oatmeal, ragi flour, barley, maize, among other healthy, nutritious cereal grains.

Whole wheat flour is rich in proteins fiber B vitamins minerals antioxidants Regular consumption of whole wheat flour helps in type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, obesity,and some forms of cancer.
Do you know that maida or wheat processing results in removal of 40% of original wheat grain, including bran and the germ, which are the most nutrient-rich parts? Do you also know that during wheat flour extraction process, over half of the fiber, calcium, B-vitamin, phosphorus, folic acid, iron, copper, and zinc are lost? (source whfoods)
This is one reason you should always go for 100% whole wheat products. This would ensure that you can benefit from the maximum amount of bran and germ of the wheat. Of course, you can derive an umpteen number of health benefits, since wheat in its original form is a great source of dietary fiber and minerals, such as magnesium and manganese.

Risks of Eating Refined Flour

Weight Loss: IF weight loss is on your agenda, then you ought to start eating whole grains, such as whole wheat flour. An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition research paper suggests the inclusion of whole grains in diet for better weight management. The study harps on the importance of choosing whole grains instead of refined flours to maintain healthy body weight. You know now why I always choose whole wheat flour baking for my cakes, cookies, desserts, and everyday cooking.

So would you still prefer maida to whole wheat flour?

Metabolic disorders: If you are used to eating refined grains, such as white flour, you are constantly proving to be an enemy of your own selves. Wondering why? Well, believe it or not, foods made from refined flour, such as baked goodies, pasta and rice, are linked to obesity, weight gain, and a high risk of diabetes from insulin resistance. Not only this. consumption of refined flour poses a high risk of metabolic syndrome, which means your body's metabolism is not at its optimal best and you are at a high risk of high triglycerides, high bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, and visceral obesity. Research reveals that people taking high fibrous foods, such as oatmeal, legumes, whole grains, and leafy vegetables, are at a low risk of metabolic syndrome, since they have a low glycemic index.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
