¼ cup wheat berries
1/8 cup raisins (soaked)
10 walnut halves (soaked)
4 cardamom pods
1 baby banana
1 teaspoon cinnamon (ground)
1. Soak 1/4 cup of wheat berries (soft/hard) in 300 ml of water overnight. Sprout the wheat until the root is at least the length of the seed. This takes me 1 1/2 days. Keep rinsing and draining every 8-10 hours or at least once in the morning and once in the evening.
2. Soak 1/8 cup of raisins in 250 ml of water along with seeds of 4 cardamom pods for at least 8 hours.
3. Soak walnuts for 8 hours and change the soak water at least once (I recommend after the first hour). Discard the water in which walnuts are soaked. But we are going to use the water in which raisins are soaked, so do not throw away.
4. Blend 6-8 minutes the wheat sprouts, raisins/cardamom mixture along with water, walnuts, and a baby banana (I find baby bananas more flavorful than regular ones. If you can’t get baby bananas, use 1/2 regular organic banana).
5. Sprinkle cinnamon and add more water if you like it bit runny. Banana and walnuts gives it creamy, thick, and porridge-like consistency.
This is one of my staple foods and it's filling.
There are lots of variations to this, and this is my version. It’s creamy, thick, and satisfies food cravings.
Adding cardamom to this recipe gives it an Indian kheer taste/flavor.
Note: Raisins have high glycemic index value and tend to raise the blood glucose levels. To counter this, cinnamon/cardamom is used to bring back the blood glucose levels.
