Bhoole-Bisre Anaaj – Unlocking Ancient Kitchens!
Those Were the Days…
Imagine the sound of winnowing done by ladies standing close to the heaps of grains, on a fine sunny day. And the spread of wet grains on sarees and dupattas basking under the Sun, waiting to get dried for that perfect grind. These pleasant sights are very rare today, as these Indian grains have diminished and these winnowing women have been replaced by huge modern machines in food processing units.
Reviving The Original & Pure
The traditional preparations of these food grains have been long forgotten practices now. That earthy aroma of these Indian grains has been replaced by artificial flavors and essences. The trend of refined grain products like refined flour or maida and polished rice, had led to serious health concerns as it contains just the fattening carbohydrates. The fat further leads to various health complications. Time has come when the present-day food trends need to go back to follow old basics. Owing to the plethora of health benefits that our Indian whole grains offer, it’s time for the health conscious souls to switch over to the old traditional foods that have been lost somewhere in the crowd of refined ones popping up almost every day.
