Rice Kanji (Rice Porridge)

11 May

In South India, from Babies to Elders , they should have come across this dish some point in time.  This is easily digestible, filling and has a soothing taste .  Sometimes doctors in India also recommend this as a diet during illness. I sometimes also make it when I have no mood to eat anything solid.


  1. Rice – 1/4 cup
  2. Water – 2 cups
  3. Fresh Yoghurt – 1/4 cup (optional) but when used adds to the taste.
  4. Salt as per taste


1. Add Rice and water to a Vessel or Pressure cooker and literally overcook the rice. The cooked rice has to be soft and watery.

2. Add the cooked rice ,some water, yoghurt and required salt to a mixer and blend it become coarse drink.

3. Serve it warm in a glass or bowl. Add little yoghurt on top


1. Hot pickle is a nice accompaniment to it.
