aadi kanji recipe

I made this arisi paruppu kanji/ rice dal porridge recipe for Aadi velli today. My MIL has the practice of offering this porridge for Mariamman on Aadi velli/friday. We call it as Mariamman kanji. My in-laws are with me for the past two weeks and we are having great days together. This time I learnt some yummy authentic recipes from her. This is one among them. In this porridge I have used rice & moong dal.It very easy to make & can be made in minutes. No need to roast the rice or dal. Its good for babies too.

Today I prepared this porridge for the first time and offered to Mariamman. It tasted yum. My in laws like this salty porridge more than the sweet ones and they usually have this for breakfast. Its a very filling & easily digestible porridge. Do try this easy porridge recipe for Aadi velli and get the blessings of Amman. Let see how to make this one step rice and dal porridge recipe.
