Hi uravugaley, today we will discuss about our authentic ulunthu kanji recipe, this is a famous recipe in village side, they will have this atleast weekly once, for strong bones and hip joints. Come let us get into the cooking
Serving number – 3 persons
Urad dal – 1/4 cup
Fenugreek seeds – 1 teaspoon
Jaggery – 1/2 cup
Grated coconut – 1/4 cup
First soak the Urad dal and fenugreek for atleast 4 hours and grind it into a fine paste in a grinder or mixer jar.
Take it in a cup and add triple the amount of water into it, ie. If the batter comes around 1/2 cup add 1 1/2 cup of water, mix well with water to make the thick paste into thin.
Add water like this, there should be no lumps.so stir well.
The batter mix should be in this consistency, watery. So that it wouldn’t get burnt while stiring.
Keep it on the stove, stir continuously, till ur hands begins to pain. Actually, I add some extra water in between.
After 15 mins the color of the mixture turns to little transparent.
Like this, check whether the raw smell of the urad dal goes off, if the raw smell is still, stir again . Now add jaggery to this.
After adding jaggery the color of the urad dal will be like this. Make sure the jaggery dissolves well.
Now u get a nice aroma from this, stir again continuously, if u like to add Elachi, powder it and mix it into it.
Now add grated coconut, stir once and off the stove, now your ulunthu kanji is ready to serve.
This is our traditional recipe, our elders know the value of this, so that they were strong.Still in our village, our elders prepare this specially on puberty function, it s believed that it makes the bone of the puberty girl strong.
