In today’s world, most of us opt for healthier choices. From saying no to sugar to salads, we are looking for clean eating. Now, here comes a traditional Indian cereal bajra. It can help in making a significant impact as people are embracing healthy food habits. Millets also known as Nutri-cereals are gaining popularity among foodies.
Millets are rich in copper, magnesium, and phosphorous. Consuming it daily helps one with weight management, regulating blood sugar levels, and promoting improved digestion through its high fibre content.
Millet ladoo contains approximately 107 calories, and the production of bajra flour requires minimal water irrigation. These ladoos help control acidity, support heart health and are beneficial for individuals with high blood pressure while also aiding in the prevention of anaemia.
Known for its weight loss benefits, Bajra ladoo is considered one of the most healthy and delicious morning breakfasts. Bajra ladoo contains high fibre content and hence eating one ladoo daily keeps you full for an extended period. Consuming it every day offers a nutritious and filling start to the day. Local women of Ranchi are often seen preparing wholesome millet ladoo at home.
Vineeta, an expert in making a millet ladoo shares a simple guide to preparing Bajra Ladoo:
Start by grinding the millet thoroughly in a mixer.
Sift bajra flour and dry roasting it in a pan.
Fry it with two spoons of ghee until light brown.
Transfer the roasted flour to a bowl, then add 1 cup of crushed or powdered jaggery, along with dry fruits, ground dates, and ¼ cup of white roasted sesame.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly and shape the mixture into a round ladoo for a delicious treat.
Millet ladoos are a healthier option compared to gram flour and gum ladoos. Bajra Ladoo, being low in calories and high in fibre, is believed to support effective weight loss.
Dr JK Mitra from RIMS Hospital underscores the high fibre content in millet, highlighting its positive impact on digestion after consuming a single ladoo. Bajra Ladoo stands out as a promising option for weight loss. Furthermore, adding vitamins and magnesium to the diet helps in boosting the immune system. Dr Mitra suggests that these nutritional aspects position Bajra Ladoo as a wholesome choice for those seeking both satiety and immune support.
