Ulutham Paruppu Kanji / Foods for puberty in Girls- Urad Dal Porridge

                                      This is usually a weekend recipe of my childhood days. In my earlier days, I will always stay away from this kanji, because of the mucinous (sticky like texture). But now, I prefer this kanji after knowing its value. When anybody in my family gets infected by cold, then this kanji is made immediately. It is normally advisable to take high protein rich food, when being infected by cold. 

                                      This magical recipe has many good ingredients in it; Urad dal, Palm Jaggery, Garlic, Dry ginger and Coconut. Urad dal is full of proteins. Kanji / Porridge is always good for our stomach.

Prep time 10 mins
Cooking time 15 - 20 mins    

1 cup Urad Dal (whole with/without skin)
3-4 cups Water 
1/4 cup Coconut Grated
2 nos Garlic (Full) 
1 inch long sized Dry Ginger/Sukku (Crushed)
1/2 cup Palm jaggery /Jaggery (Crushed)
1 cup Milk (optional)


1) Take all the ingredients urad dhal, peeled garlic, crushed dry ginger and water. Pressure cook for 15 minutes.
In another side, make jaggery syrup from crushed jaggery, by adding little water.


2) When all the ingredients are cooked, add the filtered jaggery syrup and grated coconut.
Let it cooked for 2-3 minutes. Add boiled milk and allow it to cook for another 2-3 minutes in medium flame.

                  Hence the healthy, simple, stomach friendly kanji is ready to be consumed.

  •  If you prefer to add 1 cup of milk, reduce 1 cup of water while pressure cooking.
  • You can add urad dal with/without skin. I added without skin urad dal.
