  • Sauce pan



  • ¾ cup Multi grains (150g- mix of red rice/brown rice/barley/oats/maize/millets/cornmeal)

Chopped veggies:

  • 6 garlic pods
  • ¼ cup onion
  • ¼ cup carrot
  • ¼ cup capsicum
  • ¼ cup cabbage
  • 2 tbsp cilantro leaves



  • Chop the vegetables(each 1/4 cup) after cleaning them properly.
  • Use any vegetables as you wish except watery vegetables like cucumber, gourd veggies as they become totally mush in the soup.
  • Rinse half-cup of mixed grains(multigrain like red rice, millets, barley, maize, corn and oats) thoroughly and soak in clean water for 30mins. The more you soak the soon the grains get cooked.

  • Cook the grains and vegetables for ten minutes atleast by stirring occasionally.
  • Check the doneness by pressing a hard grain with fingers.
  • Cook well until all the grains become soft. Decide the cooking time based on the varieties of grains you use.
  • When the soup is cooked well with soft grains season with salt and pepper powder as per taste.
  • Finally add cilantro (coriander) leaves, give a quick mix and switch off.
  • Serve this soup warm in a bowl for a hearty light dinner.



1) Use mixed grains as per your choice and you can also use only one-grain variety like red or brown rice or millets.
