Spicy Gotukola Porridge

This is a herbal porridge eaten during breakfast.This is usually made without any spice and eaten plain or with a piece of jaggery.I made my own twist to this divine porridge by adding up some spice.This porridge is commonly known as Kola Kenda. This also could be made with a mixture of leafy greens.Kola kenda is known to boost the immune system.

1 cup uncooked red rice
1 cup Gotu Kola (centella leaves)
1 ½ cups  thick  coconut milk
3  cups Water
1 Teaspoon  chopped ginger
1 pod  chopped garlic
½ juice of  Lemon
Salt to taste
½  teaspoon chilly flake
¼ teaspoon fenugreek ( methi) seeds

Wash Rice.Add  garlic,ginger,fenugreek seeds,chilly flakes and salt and boil with 2 cups of water.
Blend gotu kola leaves  using 1 cup of water ( strain the juice  and keep aside)
When the Rice is cooked,stir in the  coconut milk and  the gotukola juice and bring it to a boil.
Season with  lemon juice.

* Once the porridge cooled I   pureed  the  porridge in a blender.
