Indian style oats drinkable porridge / Kanji for breakfast. with garlic, coconut milk and spices
This is a perfect breakfast to kick start a day,healthy and a spicy,tasty,flavourful one. As a kid I have tasted nombu kanji,from our sweet Muslim neighbor friends ,very flavorful and healthy one…Its made of raw rice and fenugreek seeds,with lots of garlic,veggies,coconut milk and flavored with fennel and coriander too! They make this Kanji for ending their fasting .
We too make a similar version and call it as vendhaya kanji and it’s very healthy,as it contains fenugreek seeds, garlic and coconut milk. It cures stomach/mouth ulcers, we don’t add fennel though!
So this oats porridge is fusion of the above two. This recipe is actually inspired by idea of Prathiba’s savory oats porridge, I tried recently her version and liked it so much, so thought I should try as my own version.
This kanji is good for feeding mothers too.
Add the extracted milk or low fat milk to the porridge and mix well and just heat a little and serve hot!! Smells great with garlic,fennel,coriander and tastes great with coconut milk! Enjoy hot!!
