Gluten is a General name for proteins found in wheat and by products of wheat . Gluten helps food to maintain their shape , acting as a glue .

We hear so much about Gluten allergies , but it’s very recently that the nutritionist suggest a Gluten Free diet to remain healthy . To be truthful I never bothered about gluten , but two years back I met a nutritionist who explained me that it is important for us to eat a gluten free diet in order to remain healthy .

When we look at gluten free grains , we have an abundant variety which include corn , sorghum , wild rice , teff , buckwheat , quinoa , amaranth , millet , rice . So if one goes on a gluten free diet there’s a lot to eat .

I made these bajra crackers with fresh green garlic and they turned out awesome . I added some ghee to these , which gave them a unique flavor.
