Rice Kanji


Rice - 1 cup

Green Gram - 3/4 cup

Fenugreek Seeds - 1 tsp

Garlic - 1 clove (Chopped)

Pearl Onions - 3-4 (chopped)

Fresh Grated Coconut - 1-2 tblsp

Salt - as needed

Water - a lot (app. 6-8 cups)

Oil - 1 tsp

  • PREP 5 mins
  • COOK 10 mins
  • READY IN 15 mins


1. Take a deep pan, add the oil to it and fry the fenugreek seeds. 

2. Next add the chopped garlic clove and pearl onions and fry for another 30 seconds. This step is absolutely optional.

3. Add the water and bring it to a boil. The fenugreek flavour is infused in the water.

4. When the water boils add the rice and green gram.

5. Cover and let it cook till both rice and gram are cooked. If you feel you need more water, you can add some hot water to bring to the desired consistency.

6. Finally add the required salt and grated coconut. Serve as a simple breakfast or dinner.



You could also try different kanjis by substituting whole urad dal or red chori (red beans) instead of green gram.

Another variation is to substitute rice with oats and you have a healthy oats kanji. 

You can also try this with a little pickle or papad.
