Diabetic Friendly Health Mix & Kanji


Diabetic Friendly Health Mix & Kanji
Diabetic Friendly Health Mix & Kanji
I am still a newbie to blogging world. I feel very happy and encouraging when some of them message me and ask me to publish variations for regular recipes to make it diabetic friendly.  Today’s post is to address those queries with a health mix which can be used for multiple recipes. Bajra (Kambu),Jowar(Cholam), roasted gram (Pottukadalai), barley & red rice poha are roasted and blended as a nice powder or health mix. This mix is then used for various recipes which I shall be publishing soon.

After 2 weeks of trial here comes my next recipe with some ingredients which can be used for making multiple recipes. I don't know what name to give, so I am just naming it as "Diabetic Friendly health mix". One good thing in this trial is I feel superbly energetic and don't feel like going back to regular food.
The ingredients used in this health mix are safe for diabetes and cholesterol. I did not use ragi because I just wanted a prepare a different health mix than the regular one’s in which ragi is one of the main ingredient. 
In today’s post I have also added my first recipe with this health mix which is congee. This congee can be consumed by any age groups and non-diabetic too. You may add sugar if you are non-diabetic. In the upcoming weeks I shall be publishing more recipes using this health mix, so book mark this page for future references. If properly roasted this mix would stay upto a month or two.

è Do not change the proportions of bajra and jowar, as I felt jowar is slightly makes it bitter if we put them in equal proportions.

è All ingredients must be fried separately.

è Be cautious while frying jowar as they would pop up very soon and spill outside. Close the pan with a lid while frying.

è For non-diabetic and kids, you may add sugar in the congee while adding milk. In that case cook for 2 more minutes so that the sugar dissolves.

è The same mix is used for multiple purposes hence you may make them in bulk and store for 2 or 3 weeks.
