Revealing the rumours of karkidaka kanji - medicinal poridge
Munna and pappu finally prepared the karkidaka kanji today. It lead to revealing the rumours about its taste and the prepration. It was spread by different persons since years that karkidaka kanji is bitter to taste, it is too hard to prepare and requires a lot of patience.
Dont let your ears listen to those rumours.
If you are not aware about the ingredients of karkidaka kanji you could refer the earlier article on "munna and pappu to prepare karkidaka kanji". Go through the manorama link within that page. If you are a new bee and feel it tedious to buy the ingredients and prepare it then buy a karkidaka kanji kit.
Karkidaka kanji kit will cost around 100 rupess and can be taken by a single person for 7 days.
Steps to prepare karkidaka kanji from kit.
1. Take navara kiri rice from the kit and boil in a vessel with 1 and 1/2 liters of water. You do not need this volume of water if you plan to cook in a cooker.
2. After the rice is half cooked put the aushadha podi into it and stir it well.
3. After it is cooked, serve in a plate and get ready to eat.
It was fine for me to taste, but if you feel the taste bitter you can use jaggery, coconut milk or onion pieces fried within ghee to be mixed in the karkidaka kanji.
