Bajra flour porridge - Kambu maavu kanji - pearl millet flour poridge - Healthy breakfast recipe - Millet recipes - Summer recipes

I always have store bought bajra flour. Last time when my mom visited she told me that the flour was not so nice as it taste so old. And next time when I visited her she pre packed all millet flour. Mums are always best!. She is true.  I could taste the difference of mill brought / made flour. It is fresh and has nice aroma. I love to make kanji and I can have this for breakfast or lunch (when I am home). It is really refreshing and quite filling.
