When you have bajra flour (Bajri in Marathi, Gujarathi, Rajastani, Sajje in Kannada, Sajjalu in Telugu, Kambam in Malayalam, Kambu in Tamil Courtesy: Wikipedia) at home, its really handy to make easy breakfasts with it, like this kambu kanji. My instant Kambu dosai is one of my regular quick fixes these days for breakfast or dinner. This one is also my favorite, the good thing is Vj also likes this. At last he likes something easy and healthy too. So I make sure I make this when ever he is in hurry and cant spend time to sit and have his breakfast. I make this and he drinks on the go, I am also feeling content that he had something Blushing. So easy to make and guilt free breakfast. If you don’t know its health benefits, here you go – its gluten free, high in magnesium hence good for heart, blood pressure, good for diabetics, weight loss too. To buy quality bajra flour online if you are in Singapore, contact Bhairavi Naturals and place your order Happy.

Easy Kambu Kanji recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 2


Pear millet flour - 1/4 cup

Water - 1 & 1/2 cup

Butter milk - 1 cup

Salt - As needed

To temper

Oil - 1 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Mor milagai or green chilli - 2

Asafoetida/ hing - A pinch

Curry leaves - 5 leaves


  1. Dissolve bajra flour in water, with salt, without any lumps well in a vessel. Heat over stove with constant stirring. I used my whisk to dissolve the flour easily. But no worries you can use ladle itself as it gets dissolved easily. 1-mix
  2. Keep stirring to avoid getting lumps or stuck to the bottom. It gets thicker as it gets heated and when it starts to boil well, switch off the stove. By now the flour would have got cooked too. 2-cooked
  3. Keep stirring to avoid forming a layer as it cools down. Once its cooled down(becomes more thicker), add butter milk and mix well. 3-temper
  4. Lastly temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table and mix it with the porridge. If you are using green chilli, just slit it into two before adding. 4-mix


    •  Keep stirring all the times to avoid forming lumps. When it cools down, it tends to form a layer on top, so keep stirring to avoid that.
    • If you don’t have buttermilk, use a cup of water and 2 tblsp plain yogurt (curd), beat/ whisk well to get buttermilk.
    • You can make sweet version too, by adding milk, sugar and skip salt.
Yummy porridge can be had as such, if you want, you can break the mor milagain and have it spicy Love Struck!
