This food is the most comfort food on earth I feel and it tastes heavenly and comes with lots of health benefits. If you have any digestion issues and heavy dysentery, vomiting, acidic problem the very comfort food is this. Coconut milk cools down body heat as well. We have yogurt/curd rice in competition with this, but I would go for thengai kanji any time 😉 I love this so much that I can have it anytime. And a vegan 🙂 So my vegan friends would be happy to see this.

To prepare Thengai Kanji/Coconut Rice Porridge
Take raw rice and in a blender just mince for 10 seconds, not more than that, so that it splits to half size.
Next in a pressure cooker, add this cup of broken rice, water, garlic pods chopped, fenugreek seeds and pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles. Let it cool down.
Meantime to prepare coconut milk, add 1/4 cup of fresh scraped coconut and add little water and blend it to fine paste. Now pour around 1 cup of water to it and blend well. Filter this you get fresh coconut milk.
After rice cools down, add salt and coconut milk. It smells heavenly 🙂 Serve it at room temperature.
