Presenting The Second "FOODIE MONDAY BLOG HOP" Event Dish, The Theme is "MULTI-GRAIN OR WHOLE WHEAT" and My Dish is "SPICY MULTI-GRAIN SPROUTS LOAF".
The Purpose of making this Loaf is, its So so Healthy and Delicious!! When The group members decided the theme, I was thinking to make something simple yet interesting and delicious....Finally I land up with this super healthy and damn yummy multi-grain Loaf...
Whole grain multi-grain contain a dietary fiber content of up to four times Greater than and may also contain more vitamins and protein compared another simple grain. Multi-grain Loaf also provide complex carbohydrates.
For healthy living you should eat Chapatis or Rotis made out of multi-grain Flour (Atta). Pure flour which includes roughage (or fiber) is better than the refined flour without any roughage for making chapatis. Flour without roughage is like white flour which is not at all good for healthy living.
For example, people suffering from piles are advised by doctors not to eat Maida based products and white bread. Multi grain flour which can be made at most of your neighborhood flour mills (chakki) is much better than pure flour, So go for it. Feel free to change them and experiment with them in case other combination of these suit you or your family.
