It’s way too long since I made this awesome coconut milk rice porridge in my own kitchen but I have devoured this really comfort food at my mother’s place during my visit to India. I definitely have a deep, long time love for such simple and comforting breakfasts that too when temperature is still moderately hot here in UAE.
This coconut milk rice porridge happens to appear for breakfast every fortnight at my mother’s house. Because she fasts on the day of Ekadashi (11th lunar day of every fortnight) and the next day this rice porridge well known as Dwadashi Ganji in Udupi is made along with regular dosa. The combo of dosa and Ganji topped with ghee, paired with whole mango pickle is an amazing way to break the fast. Don’t you think so??
I recreated my mother’s food magic here in UAE yesterday as it was Dwadashi (12th lunar day of lunar fortnight) and celebrated the good time of breaking the fast.
Coconut milk rice porridge, all it needs is either plenty of coconut milk or coconut itself. If you have home grown coconut, then you’ll surely have to try this rice porridge for it’s simplicity with taste. I have the habit of making coconut milk from scratch like grinding fresh grated coconut with water to fine puree then straining it to extract pure, fresh milk of it’s kind. Cooking rice to it’s perfection in this coconut milk left me with this incredibly awesome ganji=>coconut milk rice porridge.
