Barley Kheer/Payasa


Happy Holi to all of you...Today I prepared Kheer out of barley,my family loved it and asking it to make it again.I prepared by grinding the barley into course powder.It is very easy and simple to prepare in no time,so I want to share with you on this auspicious day.Barley  is a good source of nutrients and antioxidants.This whole grain is not only packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, but is also one of the richest sources of fiber, both soluble and insoluble. Insoluble fiber helps in the detoxification of the body, while soluble fiber attaches to fats to aid them in getting out of your body.Barley also helps in the stabilization of blood glucose levels. In short, eating barley is good for people with diabetes. This is because fiber found in barley can cause a delay in the stomach emptying and can slow down the body's absorption  of carbohydrates from foods. Barley should be included in the diet of a person suffering from this health problem.It also reduces body heat,good for urinary tract infections,kidney stones and water retention to name a few.

Barley Powder-4tbsp
Milk-2cups
Condensed milk-1/2cup
Saffron strands-1/4tsp
Cardamom powder-1/4tsp
