Rajgara (Rajgira) ni Raab Recipe| Amaranth Malt Recipe
Recipe type: Healthy Drink
Raab is a delicious Gujarati sweet soup aka amaranth malt. It's very effective remedy for sore throat and body weakness. A bowl of raab/soup soothes your throat and whole body. A dash of soonth powder and ganthoda powder adds spicy values to it. And, ghee+gur (jaggery) gives all strengths to your body.
about 2 tbsp ghee
2 heaped tbsp rajgira/rajgaro in Gujarati/ amaranth flour
about 4-5 tbsp heaped, or to taste jaggery
2.5 cups water
adjust according to taste - ⅛ tsp ganthoda powder + ⅛ soonth powder OR simply use 1 tsp chai masala powder
In a medium saucepan bring the water+jaggery to boil.
When your jaggery water starts to boil slowly, in mean time heat ghee (lowest heat) in thick sauce pan and add into rajgira flour. Roast with a spoon. Roast continuously on lowest heat till the rajgira flour releases its smell and flour is turned into slight pink.
Be careful not to burn the flour while roasting. Keep an eye and all attention here. If your flour is roasted well switch off the flame.
Now your jaggery water should be rolling boiled. Strain the water into a Pyrex jug or something to leave the impurities out from jaggery.
Now it's time to pour in flour. Bring the flour mixture on heat again and pour the jaggery water, very carefully. At the same time, stir continuously the mixture with other hand to prevent any lumps in there. A long-handled spoon or wire whisk works well.
Now, stir in gnathoda powder + soonth powder OR chai masala powder. Simmer the raab up to 2-3 minutes more. You'll see your raab is thickening now. Serve warm in a soup bowl. Your kiddo will love it!
- Only ghee would work best here. I can't think any other replacement.
- The rajgira flour can be replaced with whole wheat (atta) flour or bhakhari flour.
