Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Agree. But it’s also the hardest meal to decide on. For lunch, I’ve got half the morning to decide on what I’m going to make. But when you wake up and need to decide between porridge, toast or cereal, sometimes the routine can be a bit boring. If I were to dig deep down into my golden book of healthy breakfast recipes, one ingredient that would stand out is finger millet.
Finger Millet? Huh? This not so commonly used grain is used as a cereal and is very easily available in India. They look like tiny brown mustard seeds that are sold as a flour. You can also get the roasted variety, which tastes simply super!
Finger millet, also known as Ragi in India is not only healthy but safe to give babies as little as 6 months. That’s how amazing this super superfood is! It comes as a powder that you mix with water and boil. And if you get hold of the roasted variety I mentioned earlier, it tastes a lot like chocolate when sweetened with some coconut sugar. Can you imagine eating a warm bowl, full of smooth chocolate, that’s not really chocolate ?!
Top them up with your favorite dried fruit and nut! Now that’s was I call a fully charged Breakfast! And did you notice something else in this recipe? No CARB! Winner!
