Hello Everyone and Wishing You All A Very Happy 2019 !!!
Holidays are over and winters are still our guest for few more days, hence let’s just rejoice the new year and off late winter evenings with some rustic, organic food that comes direct from the wilderness. Well i’m talking about my new collaboration with one of my most favorite brand BAKRI CHHAP (Natural Himalayan Product) by The Green People
Yayyyy, Drum Rolls !!!!
Bakri Chhap Natural Himalayan Produce comes directly from the farmers of Himalayas who are on the verge of leaving agriculture due to the fact that they have not been getting good prices for their produce. This happens mainly because of too many middlemen between the actual producer and final consumer. Green People, through Bakri Chhap, is Creating a brand for the farmers of Himalayan Villages. I feel fortunate to be associated with Bakri Chhap and do whatever little i can in the form of photography and recipes. So all who want to be a part of Bakri Chhap family can now get their products on Amazon as well.
So, here’s my very first recipe with Mandua Flour. Mandua Flour, also known as Finger Millet or Ragi. Garhwali and Kumauni folks call it Koda too. Boast to be known as one of the most nutritious and beneficial grains in the world. Mandua is a bestie for growing children and women since it has high calcium content and excellent for developing strong bones. Consumed in any form, I am good for diabetics. It’s also a rich source of iron, fibre and iodine. Mandua Atta is available round the year and it’s shelf life is a maximum upto 3 months.
Mandua flour is considered to be a rich source of Iron and Iodine. Check out it’s Nutritional value below :

I chose to make Mandua roti inspired by authentic Pahadi recipe from Kumaon that i once saw on Living Foodz Channel. Its a thick shallow fried roti flavored with green chilies, carrots, ginger and garlic and is best served with Aloo Tamatar Rassa or Pudina Chutney. You can serve it with any of your favorite Saag or Curry as well. Bakri Chhap also shares few more recipe suggestions on their website that goes like : Bharwa Roti, Koda Ki badi, Halwa, Palyo or Koda Kadhi, Laddu, Power Balls, Bruschetta, Sandwiches etc.
