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.
