Nonbhu Kanji is a lightly flavoured, savoury porridge made with rice and spices. This dish is mainly made during the Muslim month of Ramadan that is largely relished to break the fast in the evenings.
As this kanji is lightly flavoured, it's mostly served with a tangy and spicy chutney made with any country vegetable of the season like brinjal/yam/tomato. Every region and district has its own version of nonbhu kanji.
This recipe is exclusively from the Ravuthar community of Tirunelveli district.
