Barley Porridge

If you like to have a bowl of super filling healthy porridge for your breakfast like me, this quick and super healthy barley porridge is for you. Actually i prepared this healthy, filling breakfast porridge with homemade barley rava and went for pressure cooking. Needless to say that this porridge takes hardly less than 15minutes to get ready and i enjoyed thoroughly with some spicy mango thokku for my today's breakfast. A quick breakfast to kick start your day.

For making barley rava, just dry roast the pearl barleys and grind it for few minutes, sieve it to get the flour and the barley rava separately.Store the barley rava and flour separately in an air tight boxes and use it as per need.This barley rava is quite handy for making this kind of wholesome foods.If you are bored of usual oats porridge, give a try to this porridge and am sure you will definitely enjoy this healthy food.Sending to my own event CWS-Barley guest hosted by Roshni and to my another event Healthy Diet-Fast & Quick Healthy Dish guest hosted by Kalpana.


1/4cup Barley rava
1+1/2cups Water
1/2cup Milk
Salt (as per need)

In a pressure cooker, take the barley rava, water and salt, pressure cook for two or three whistles.

Once the steam gets released, finally add the milk to the porridge and stir it.

Serve hot with your favourite thokku or pickle.

Never had Barley as savoury porridge form, always sweet with loads of sugar. This one is obviously tastier and healthier.
