Anjali and Manikya Sanghi share their recipe for Indian Porridge. “Served mostly during morning meals, Indian porridge is made from bulgur wheat, which is a cereal food made from the groats of several different varieties of wheat,” Anjali says. “Traditionally, it is served with dairy, a sweetener such as sugar or jiggery and garnished with a small amount of cardamom. I used to have this every morning when I was a vegetarian. After becoming raw vegans we found that the same texture and even a more delicious flavor can be created just through fruits. We are delighted to share this recipe with you.”
Anjali, the founder trustee of Indian Raw Vegan Foundation, is a blessed soul, strong spirit, raw vegan mother and wife. She is also an internationally acclaimed, award-winning artist-painter, renowned natural healer and author and speaker for the new generation kids and parents.
