Bajra is one of the cereals, other than jowar, which is alkaline by nature and thus suitable for those suffering from acidity.

Bajra Khichdi to control acidity has been wisely paired with yellow moong dal, which is the most easiest to digest amongst all the dals. Furthermore, all the spices added (cumin seeds, asafoetida and turmeric powder) also promote digestive health.

Try this Alkaline Bajra Khichdi instead of fat-laden and maida-based delicacies, for dinner. This is sure to prevent acidity attack at night.

Serve it with a bowl of curd it if suits you. Else have a glass of buttermilk – this aids in digestion too.

With not much effort from your side, you can cook and serve this health treat on table within 20 minutes. But you need to remember and soak the bajra well in advance for at least 8 hours, else the bajra would not cook completely.
