Millet Soup (Bajra Raab)
Millet Soup! Lately, I have been experimenting with some different recipes that are both healthy and delicious. I decided to try a recipe for "Millet Soup", which is a traditional warm soup in Rajasthan and Gujarat, and this soup is known Bajra Raab. Millet is gluten free and full of many nutrients. It is also super easy to make. It is amazing how a bowl of hot soup can be so filling and comforting, especially as the days get colder and darker. The main ingredients in this soup are millet flour, yogurt, and some spices to enhance the flavor. Enjoy! This recipe will serve 2.
