Ulundham Kanji | Karuppu Ulundhu Kanji | Traditional Recipe

uluntham kanji

This is yet another recipe from my mom and my region. My mom belongs to Nagercoil and she makes most of the dishes of that style. Specially, all the kanjis. I have already posted a number of porridge or kanji recipes in my blog. All because of her. She is the one who makes only kanji as breakfast every sunday. I really wonder the variety of porridges and a wide variety of thuvaiyals. Might be it is a speciality of Nagercoil Cuisine or Nanjil Cuisine to include a number of Kanji or Porridges. They also have some apt, light and healthy side dishes to accompany. I love papada miladi the best. Also my favorite Naaranaga Oorukai or Naaranga Achar. Any kanji will become a hit, if it is given along with Naaranga Oorukai.

Now coming back to this protein rich Uluntham Kanji. It is rich in protein. It is also rich in vitamin B. It also has much fiber. Usually, they give this one to pregnant women during 2nd trimester. Also to girls who attained puberty. This is a post-puberty dish in our area. They also make ulunthu sadham. Ulunthu sadham with mutta curry or mutta aviyal is one kind of regional dish. Next time, I will post it. Today's recipe is the simple ulunthu kanji or uluntham kanji.
