A great combination of malted cereals and pulses that provides energy, protein and folic acid. Nachni is not a commonly used cereal which is sad because it is extremely rich in iron and calcium as compared to other cereals. You can store this mixture in an air-tight container for a couple of weeks.
- Soak the whole moong, whole wheat and ragi in separately containers for 6 to 8 hours.
- Drain out all the water, tie them in separate muslin cloths and allow them to sprout. This may take upto 2 days in warm weather. Remember to keep sprinkling water on the musllin cloth to keep it damp, as the grains will not sprout if they are dry.
- Dry roast all the whole grains separately on a tava (griddle) over a slow flame, stirring continuously till they are crisp and can be easily powdered.
- Cool for 5 minutes and combine all the toasted grains. Rub them between your palms to remove all the ;burnt skin and sprouts which will otherwise leave a burnt taste in the mixture.
- Separate this burnt portion from the toasted grains by passing it through a sieve. Discard the burnt portion.
- Grind the toasted grains to make a fine powder.
- Cool and store in a sterilised air-tight container. Use as required.
- Take 1 tablespoons of the dry mixture , add the hot milk and mix well. Cover and keep aside for 5 minutes till it is lukewarm.
- Add the mashed banana, mix well and serve immediately.
- Instead of banana you can also use mashed chickoo, pureed dates or jaggery to sweeten this malted mixture.
