Bhardi is a traditional multigrain baby porridge homemade by mothers in Maharashtra to provide nutritious sustenance to babies. A mix of dal, nuts, cereals, seeds and dry fruits, it is a rich source of fibre, minerals, vitamins, protein and healthy fats that bolster muscle development and help build a child’s immunity. It can make for a flavourful, light-on-the-tummy breakfast for adults too.
Ingrained in traditional community life, Bhardi is fed to babies across Maharashtra's hinterland. The ingredients are carefully dry roasted before they are pounded to make a porridge recipe mix that's the quintessential Indian answer to commercial baby food. Your grandmother would approve.
About The Seller
Mother and daughter duo, Neelima Madhukar Naik and Snehal Pravin Naik, laid the foundation of Naik’s Konkan Food Bazaar way back in 2006. Neelima’s confidence in her long-perfected recipes combined with the highest quality of local ingredients fuelled their modest business providing Konkani food essentials including pickles, papad, flour and speciality products under one roof. 15 years later, the family business employs nine hardworking women and is run by her grandson Siddharth who takes utmost pride in his Aaji’s recipes and describes her as a relentless woman, who even at the age of 75 insists on making her own pickles and mixes.
