Multigrain Wheat Porridge – Kodhumai Kanji
Multigrain Wheat Porridge / Kodhumai Kanji is an easy and healthy drink prepared by roasting Multigrain wheat flour with ghee and boiling it in milk with sugar until thickens. It can be prepared as either sugar version (with milk) or salt version (with buttermilk). Salt version is healthier and sugar version is tastier. 🙂
Porridge – Dhalia or Kanji or Koozh is a thick and healthy, filling drink which can substitute a meal. Normally, in India, Kanji or koozh is mostly prepared during fasting time. During fasting, only liquids are allowed for intake. So, most people take Kanji varieties as they would be filling and also the ingredients would be mild. People prefer porridge for diet purpose also. Several flavors of porridge are there all of which is healthy – Ragi Kanji, Godhumai Kanji, Arisi Kanji, Oats Kanji, Sathu maavu Kanji, Kambankoozh etc.
Bored of malted drink mixes ?!?! Try this nutritious homemade healthy drink, Multigrain wheat Porridge for a change. We all try new things when we are in a different environment. That’s how I tried this Indian porridge at my grandma’s home. The sweet kanji served chilled is the best mid-noon drink ever. Kodhumai Kanji is the best option for a satisfying meal on a long fasting day. It tastes good when served warm or chilled.
