This is my first post for 2018,and i thought to start with a recipe sweet and healthy..!
This is a laddu ,made with ingredients full of protein and other impressive nutrients.The
dried palmyra tuber or the odiyal (mostly found in Srilanka) is also used in this recipe.
A quick peek into the benefits of black rice .Black rice ,though known to be in existence
thousands of years ago,and mostly consumed by the Chinese royalty ,the spark of healthy
and organic food search has now unraveled the benefits of the black rice.
To point a few benefits…full of antioxidants,good for detoxification,good for heart
diabetes ,and obesity.Not forgetting the palmyrah tuber or odiyal ,which also contains
calcium,iron ….and many nutrients.
You can make this laddu for those who do not like to have black rice…a healthy cheat
treat.So…now for the recipe.
1 cup black rice
1/2 cup flax seeds
1 cup moong dal (green gram dal)
1 cup palmyra tuber pieces (optional)
1 -1.5 cups jaggery grated
