Good morning on this fine Saturday, well its fine where I am anyway for now!
Today has been all go, 2 clients before 9am and then a day of work in the tattoo shop. After my clients were trained and I was ready for job number two I made a very tasty and new to me breakfast which I just have to share with you. I used some more of my Spices of India goodies for this so here is my next review of these great products…….
When my parcel came through I was very excited about the raggi (millet) flour, being gluten free any other options are welcomed by me and this flour i had never heard of before. I have eaten millet flakes and whole millet but never the flour, I was quite surprised just how easy and yummy it is!
Fruity Raggi Flour and Cardamon Porridge
Ingredients, serves one:
1/4 cup raggi flour
1/4 cup water + 2Tbsp
1/4 cup milk
(I used lacto free but soy, rice, etc. would all work fine)
1 cup berries
1/2 crushed cardamon pod
Add raggi flour and liquids to a small pan over a low heat and stir, this takes barely any time to thicken. Add the 2 Tbsp of water once the mixture has thicken up and take off the heat, stir and once blended add the fruit and put back over the heat. De-shell the cardamon pod and grind in a pestle and mortar, I only used half as the black ones are quite strong, add to the mix and continuously stir over the heat until your mix turns a pretty pink colour and it is heated through.
Serve and enjoy!
I topped mine with low fat greek yogurt and toasted coconut which was just awesome! I have been wanting to make a hot breakfast like this for ages but until now just haven't gotten round to it. With these new ingredients I was inspired to try out something new and I am glad I did, so yummy. I shall be making this a lot more now the weather is getting rather frosty in the mornings, sometimes you just need a warm hug from your food and this does the trick : )
Enjoy your weekend everybody x x x
