Kanjivallam (Rice porridge)

I always prefer light diet in the morning. If you are just like me, then this will be a lovely diet that can be made soon too.

Kanjivallam is a kerala dish which is also called as malabar kanji. I am really not sure if this is the perfect authentic way it is made, but this is the way I love it. :)



Raw Rice - 1 cup
Moong Dhall - 1/3 cup
Coconut - 1 tbsp

Milk - 1/2 cup
Water - 5 cups

Salt - for taste


Cook rice and moong dhall together in cooker pouring 5 cups of water. Now smash the contents nicely. Add milk, salt and coconut to it and mix well. You can add more water if you want the porridge to be lite. Finally heat this contents for 5 m
in and serve hot.

Kanjivallam is ready to eat. Serve it hot with urad dhall chutney or pickle. :)

Urad dhall chutney


Urad dhall - 2 tbsp
Red chillies - 3

Coconut - 2 tbsp
Tamarind paste - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - for taste


Fry urad dhall and red chillies in a pan adding a spoon of oil to it. Once the dhall turns golden brown remove it from flame and let it cool down. Now grind all the other ingredients together. Finally season it with mustard and curry leaves.
Urad dhall chutney is ready to eat. :) Happy eating. :)

I am sending this dish as an entry for the 'Show me your Breakfast' event conducted by Divya.
