Ramadan nombu kanji recipe in my blog may be surprising to some of u .Being a passionate food blogger, i love to try all unique recipes from all cuisines.This is one such recipe which i was longing to try.As i had tasted this porridge in my childhood days from my Muslim friends,i wanted to try the same on my own.As Ramadan month has started,all our Muslim friends would be under fasting from Dawn to dusk.Generally muslims in Tamilnadu and Kerala break their fasting with this “Nombu kanji/Gruel “ which they get from masgid/Mosque.Ramadan is a time of spiritual reflection, improvement and increased devotion and worship.The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities & its purpose being to cleanse the soul by freeing it from harmful impurities.Food and drink is served daily, before sunrise and after sunset.Pre-fast meal is called Suhoor and Fast-breaking meal after sunset is known as Iftar.For breaking the fast,they begin with dates,continue with salad & main course followed by desserts.Usually this Nombu kanji is served along with vada,bonda or samosa( some deep fried snacks).

I must thank my friend Halima for sharing this recipe and their customary practices.She told this porridge is the most important Iftar recipe for them & they get this porridge from the mosque everyday to break their fasting.She told it would be much tastier than the ones prepared at home .As i am a pure vegetarian, she shared her vegetarian version happily and also encouraged me to post in my blog.Its a very easy one pot meal which is very good for our health too.With the smell of masalas and the flavour of coconut milk,this porridge was awesome.I loved it a lot & i would say this is the best porridge recipe i have ever tasted.U can adjust the consistency based on ur wish. Ok , Lets see how to make this tasty,easy Muslim special nombu kanji at home . Before that,I would like to wish all my Muslim friends a very happy Ramadan .
Enjoy this Muslim special Nombu kanji with vada/Bonda/Bajji or samosa .It tastes heavenly !
