A blend of Barley, Chickpeas & Rice are the main ingredient of Talbina. The grains are roasted, milled and crushed to produce a ready-to-eat food we named Talbina. The name is taken from a barley based Arab cuisine which was favored by Rasulullah sallalahu alaihi wa sallam.
Talbina can be eaten by mixing with milk, yogurt, water or fruit juice. But it is prescribed to boil and then mixed with milk, yogurt fruit juice. It can also be eaten in a spicy manner by adding meat.
A combination of protein, vitamins and minerals can improve your health very effectively.
