Every time anyone in our family catches a cold, we make Bajra ni Raab.  It is nutritious and my Dadi always said that it will build your immunity to fight the cold. You can make this simple drink in less than 5 minutes. We drink this several times a day especially when any of us  are fighting cold.

If you visit Rajasthan, you will find this Raab  at most places during winter months.  Born and raised in jain family, we grew up drinking Raab after paryushan when we broke our fast. If you are a nursing mom, you can consume this Raab as it helps to create heat in the body to produce milk.
