My daughter is studying in I standard . She has given a routine activity manual from school for extra curricular activities. Today she has to brought nutritious meal in lunch and said few lines about it. I was thinking what to prepare early in the morning which has bucket of health benefits ,suddenly I recall about my broken wheat . I still brush up how my granny used to made broken wheat in her own wheat mill. Those were fabulous days and can’t be forgotten. I thought what could be more healthy than wheat porridge whose health benefits are infinite. So I have quickly made this and of course tried to made her learn few lines about it . Hope she should say her lines properly and got good grades for that. So let’s start the recipe.yum
