Bhagar kheer is popular during fasting because of its stomach-friendly ingredients. It has several variations in different households, but our chef uses her family recipe, which makes it authentic and yummy. Bhagar or Barnyard millet is a healthy ingredient as it’s rich in fiber, it makes this dish gluten-free, and is a good source of iron.
