There are hundreds of Ayurveda recipes around the world. These recipes have evolved through the ages to include the needs and wants of the people who create them. One such recipe is the one for Bread and Milk. In this article you will learn about how to make a delicious and nutritious homemade Ayurveda bread using ingredients commonly found at home.
Ingredients that you will need are: organic white and brown sugar, lemon juice, honey, salt, eggs, nonfat dry milk, unrefined yeast, dry fruits, flaxseed oil and water. First of all, you must soak the washed grains in water for half an hour or more to get rid of any dirt and then drain off the water. Next, boil some water in a pan and then add the grains, sugar and honey. Leave it overnight to cool. The next day, you can put the cleaned grains in a clean crockery bag and tie it with a piece of string so that it does not spill its contents all over the kitchen.
When it comes to making Bread and Milk, you can use either a traditional or modern non-stick pan, a wooden or metal mixing bowl and a clean crockery bag.

Then place in the egg and keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved.
Add The Honey
Once this is done, you can now add the honey and the milk and let it steep for some time. Then you can switch off the flame and cover the container.

Now, you have plenty of fresh and tasty dairy products at your disposal.
