Grandmom’s Recipe ( Ep. 3) | Healthy Vegetarian Breakfast Recipe | Jowar Khichdi

September 12, 2017

Categories: Food, Recipe

There are many millets that were part of the Indian diet for centuries but have lost prominence over time. One such ancient grain is Jowar or Sorghum.  Jowar is a gluten free grain that has a high content of calcium and is also packed with iron, protein and fibre. It's rated as one of the top 5 super healthy grains in the world.  Jowar could easily replace staple grains such as rice and wheat making for a gluten-free alternative.

This week we're back with episode # 3 from Grandmom Jyoti Zaveri's kitchen where she's whipping up a special and extremely healthy recipe - Jowar Khichdi. This is a perfect wholesome meal for the family. You can add vegetables of your choice to it depending on your family's tastes.


  • 1/2 Cup Sabut Jowar (sorghum)
  • 1/2 Cup Peanuts roasted and crushed
  • 1/2 Cup Potatoes boiled and cut
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp Jeera (Cumin)
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • Crushed Green Chillies, Ginger & Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • A handful of Kadhi Patta (Curry Leaves)
  • A little Sugar (optional)
  • Coriander to garnish


  • Soak the jowar for 6-7 hours or cook it for 1 whistle in the pressure cooker for about 15 minutes
  • Heat your pan and add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the jeera seeds and let it crackle.
  • Add the kadhi patta, green chillies and ginger garlic paste.
  • To this add the jowar, boiled potatoes and crushed peanuts.
  • Mix it all up well and add salt, the lemon juice and sugar if adding.
  • Garnish with coriander and serve warm.
