Barley Buttermilk / Diet Friendly Recipe

Barley is one of the healthy ingredient which is helpful in weight loss because of its highly fiber content. In addition, it stabilize blood pressure, reduces the symptoms of arthritis, reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer, lowers bad cholesterol and many more. Including this our regular meal makes us energetic and also keeps our stomach full longer. This is one of the drink, I used to take during dieting days to control the hunger pangs. Addition of roasted seeds also helps in weight reduction as it is rich in  proteins and minerals, good source of fiber and rich in omega 3, fatty acids and antioxidants.

Ingredients :

1/2 Cup Thick curd 
1 1/2 Tbsp Roasted Barley powder 
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp Roasted seeds ( Watermelon, Flax and Muskmelon seeds )
2 Cups Water

Method :

Take thick curd in a bowl and add the roasted barley powder.

Whisk well without any lumps and add the required amount of salt and water.

Crush the roasted seeds and add it to the buttermilk.

Mix well and serve chill.

Note :

Increase the quantity of the curd if you prefer to serve thick and creamy buttermilk.

If mixed roasted seeds are not available in the market, dry roast all the seeds separately and use it.

Roasted barley is readily available in the market. If not, just dry roast the barley in a medium flame and grind into fine powder.
