A wholesome meal always should have carbohydrates, protien and other nutrients. We have a misconception that cooked rice or chappathis and the likes have these kind of nutrients, but I have personally found Kanji's fulfilling and also have all the necessary nutrients needed. Especially if it is made with rice rawa.
Jeeraga Chamba Rice - 1 cup
Green gram - 1 cup
Shallots - 12 nos
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Red Chilly - 3 nos
Green Chilly - 2 nos
Salt to taste
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Wash and soak rice for about 1/2 an hour. Soak green gram for 1 hour. Mix them together and pressure cook along with finely chopped shallots, slit green chillies. Pressure cook for 5 whistles.
Grind coconut and red chillies together along with a little salt to a coarse paste with less water. Mix it to the cooked gruel and boil it for another few minutes.
(If it is served for diabetics, the coconut can be avoided. While serving the kids, the number of chillies can be altered. While giving it for pregnant women and kids, the porridge have to be thick and less spicy)
Add little ghee on top before serving.
