Bajra is a storehouse of nutrients, but hardly included in the diet except perhaps as a khichdi or roti. Here is a truly delicious snack made of whole bajra and broccoli. Chopped onions, garlic and red chilli flakes impart tremendous taste to this snack, while olive oil, though used in small quantities lends its characteristic aroma to it. This snack appears to be time-consuming only because bajra has a hard texture and takes time to cook. However, because we have chosen to pressure cook it, the effort you have to put in is minimal, making this a very easy snack indeed.

Intersting mix of an exotic vegetable with old fashioned bajra- I add zucchini, peppers and a dash of cheese as well!

Perfect recipe for endurance athletes. As Bajra is in its whole form, it does not provide a spike in your insulin levels and therefore keeps your fat burning on all through. I add chopped coloured capsicums to this recipe and often have it for dinner. This recipe will keep you super lean.
