Having High running temperature?? Feeling Tired? Are you preparing food for "Just Delivered Mom" ? Want to start a porridge for 6 months old baby? Or just to have a rich and healthy porridge, then Parboiled Rice Porridge (Puzhungal Arisi Kanji) is the one and only best option for us. My sister used to say that this porridge has a capability of bringing down the temperature and helps us to get strength we lost because of illness. Not only that, for just delivered mom, this porridge used to be their supper atleast for a month as part of the Balanced Diet. It is the second good semi-solid food for the 6 month old babies other than Raagi porridge.

    1. Hello, this is a parboiled rice recipe. parboiled or boiled rice are much more healthier than the raw rice especially for kids & toddlers. Raw rice especially what we get in market today as white polished rice are unhealthy as all the healthier stuff in the rice are removed and the rice has only starch. so better to use boiled or parboiled rice

  2. Hi Subbu maami, Can this rice porridge be fed for 5 month old babies? If yes, can they handle it if I include omam? Also want to know if manathakkali vathal can just be added for garnish and the rice porridge alone be fed to the baby. Even in which case again, can they handle ghee? Please let me know.
