I m presenting you today with this Simple rice gruel breakfast made from Leftover rice/Pazhaya Saadam. Now-a-days, we throw any leftover rice fearing bacterial growth/food poisoning. But actually, when prepared properly this leftover rice serves the best of nutrition.
This healthy breakfast is known by different names in different cuisines. Like Pazham Kanji in our neighbhouring kerala, Saddi Annamu in Telugu and Panta bhath in Bengali. So, this recipe is like God, known by different name but promotes nothing but good health!!!
- Soak Leftover rice in water and leave it on the counter overnight or atleast 8 hours. The Water should just soak the rice, do not add more water.
- Next day morning, take the water soaked, add yogurt, arisi kanji, salt, ginger, green chili, chopped onions. Mash it well with your hands, or use our modern day blender and blend once. Eat/Drink it to your heart content.
