Green gram-rice kanji with roasted chilli thogayal( video recipe)


Green gram- rice kanji with step by step pictures and video.

Green gram- rice kanji is a healthy porridge. It is a one-pot easy dinner recipe that can be easily made. This porridge is filling and be given to people above 2 years. I mostly make this kanji when I run out of an idea for what to make for dinner. In the place of green gram, you can use black urad dal and it is urad dal kanji. Don't skip the addition of garlic as it gives flavor, taste, and aids in the digestion. The thogayal I prepared is the best combo. do try this once and let me know it.
