Barley Jaava/Barley Kanji

As the summer sun starts to show it's intensity it is necessary for us to take foods that can keep our body cool and help us to beat the heat of the sun.One such healthy and traditional drink is Barley Jaava or Barley Kanji.Every summer my mother used to make this kanji almost everyday in our house.Barley has a very cooling effect on the body and help us from dehydrating and keeps the body cool .We used to like taking it with buttermilk which is again a nice coolant.

This recipe goes to CWF-WG:Barely Event hosted by me.

Let us see how this simple Barley recipe is made--------------

Main Ingredients :

Seasoning Ingredients :
----------------------------- taste

Preparation :
Rinse the barley and pressure cook it with water for 3 whistles.

Once the pressure settlees down remove the lid and cool the barley water.

Once the barley water is cooled pour the cooked barley and water into a blender and blend well.So that the barley pearls are nicely broken.Now add butter milk and blend one more time.

Now add some salt to the barley jaava/kanji and pour it into the serving glasses and serve.

This is a very good remedy to beat the heat and as well a very healthy food for anytime of the day.

Note :
If you like you can add few drops of lemon juice to this kanji and enjoy it.
