Bajra and other millets are known, rightly, as wonder grains because they are a treasure trove of nutrients. Here, bajra being rich in iron is very important to build the haemoglobin stores of your child.

In a porridge form, enriched with ghee and sweetened with dates, bajra becomes very appealing to your child too.

Before making the Bajra Porridge, keep all the ingredients ready and then start, because it tends to get lumpy and thick if not stirred continuously.
