This is commonly known as Vaditha Kanji in Tamil which means, the whole Kanji is made using the water that is drained after the rice is cooked in open vessel. (Pressure cooked rice wont have any water remaining in it). This recipe is good for pregnant women to reduce the excess water that gains in the legs. It also helps in easy urinating during pregnancy especially in the 3rd trimester.

Ingredients:
Rice - 1 cup
Water - 5 cups
Butter - 1 spoon
Salt -  to taste
Palm Jaggery - 2 tbsp

Method:
Wash and clean rice. Add water to it and cook it. When it is done drain the excess water. Add salt, butter, palm jaggery to it and mix well. Drink warm. 

Note: It is a must that only palm jaggery is used.
