This is a perfect break fast to kick start a day,healthy and a spicy,tasty,flavourful one.This recipe is actually originated by idea of Prathiba’s savory oats porridge,I tried recently her version and liked it so much!
As a kid I have tasted noanbu kanji,from our sweet Muslim neighbor friends ,very flavorful and healthy one…Its made of raw rice and fenu greek 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 and call it as vendhaya kanji and its 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.
|Oats( I used Quaker easy cook)||1/2 cup|
|Garlic||6 – 10 flakes|
|Carrot chopped||2 –3 tblsp|
|Tomato chopped||3 tblsp|
|Green chilli ,Chopped||1 no.|
|Fennel (optional)crush slightly||1/4 tsp|
|Coriander leaves chopped||2 tblsp|
|Coconut grated||1/4 cup|
- Pressure cook everything with enough water(just add to cover the oats),except coconut in the above ingredients up to 2 whistles.
- Open the cooker and mash it well with a masher. Make sure you mash the garlic properly so that the flavor blends well.
- Extract milk from the coconut by grinding it with lukewarm water and squeeze out the milk.
- Add the extracted 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!!
