Kambu Koozh / Pearl Millet Porridge


Kambu koozh is one of the famous street foods during summer. It is usually stored in a large mud pot (natural refrigerator) it also give unique taste. Since we don’t have mud pot we can store this in refrigerator with water, even the water is healthier one. My kids love these type of koozh, if they didn’t like the koozh just give them the water alone instead of juice or plain water its healthy.

Ingredients:


Kambu Arrusi
1 cup
Water
3 cup
Curd
1 cup
Salt
as per taste



Directions:


  1. In heavy bottomed vessel heat water, when water is boiling, add kambu rice and cook by closing the lid halfway.
  2. Keep stirring occasionally, when the rice is cooked all the water will be absorbed.
  3. When it’s warm enough to hold make small balls out of that (3-4 balls).
  4. Add cold water to this balls and store in refrigerator. Next day take the balls add curd and mix well without lumps. Add salt and water (which is used to soak the balls) mix well and serve with small onion and green chili.


Note:
I bought kambu arrusi from India during my last visit. But here I didn’t find one like that, don’t worry if you have regular kambu sprinkle water and using mixe broke it. It should be broken into course powder (like broken wheat).
