Do we just eat Sri Durga food? No, we do not. Though Sri Durga is a daily visit, we need breakfast after yoga practice. And for that, there are ragi flakes.
Okay, ragi is millet, so ragi flakes are millet flakes. They also include jowar (sorghum) and rice.
One of the fascinating things on this box of cereal is the serving suggestion:
Eating breakfast cereals need not always be sweet and boring. Mix chopped onion, carrots, cucumber, tomato, coriander leaves and green chillies. Mix your serving of ragi flakes into this.
As tempting as that sounds, I’ve been sticking to soy milk in my ragi flakes. Specifically, what we like to call “Don Draper soy milk.” Check this out, Mad Men fans:
What? Don Draper is jumping for joy on the front of my soy milk. And that’s not even the best of it. There is something even better than plain soy milk:
Pistachio soy milk. I’ll admit, when I saw this, I was immediately intrigued. And not just because Don Draper is wearing boxing gloves and a dress shirt for his fight. I loved pistachio ice cream as a kid, and couldn’t resist trying out the soy milk.
I opened the box and poured out some soy milk. At first I was disappointed, because I was expecting it to be green (it’s white). BUT THEN I TASTED IT. It is the crack of soy milk. It makes you only want to drink pistachio soy milk for the rest of your life. Seriously.
A little research online helped me find out that 1) Kesar Pistar means saffron pistachio, and 2) this stuff is not available in the US. Our loss.
