The kesari baths of the local darshinis in Bangalore are something that I grew up on. Once in a while, I have this intense craving for something sweet, especially the Kesari Bath I have had since time immemorial.
One of those days, my craving for Kesari Bath and my liking for anything and everything made with Proso Millet compelled me to try out preparing Kesari bath using Proso Millet Rava and I can say for sure that this is one dish that everyone should try out.
This Proso Millet Kesari Baath is a healthy, modern classic.
Proso Millet has the largest grain among the millet rices in addition to all the general millet characteristics (gluten-free, low glycemic index, high fibre, etc). It is golden in colour, so it’s also called the golden Millet. Proso millet is a part of the staple diet of many cultures.
Proso Millet is called as Variga (in Telugu), Baragu (in Kannada), Pani Varagu (in Tamil) or Chena (in Hindi)
