Pazhaiyadhu/Pazhaiya Soru/Neeraagaram is one of the healthiest Breakfast recipes handed over by our ancestors to us. ‘Pazhaiya’ in Tamil means old and ‘Sadham’ means rice. The other name is Neeraagaram, in which 'Neer' means water and 'Aagaram' means 'meals'. Pazhayasadham has amazing and astonishing health benefits. Pazhaiyadhu is usually made with Vaditha Sadham [the rice is cooked and excess water is drained] rather than the pressure cooked rice. Pazhaiyadhu/Neeraagaram is a traditional recipe forgotten by many and given less importance in the Indian Cuisine. As years past most of the traditional food practices have gone out of practice. Pazhaidhu is one among them and look down as poor man’s food and ignored irrespective of its nutritional value. Please read below about the benefits of consuming Pazhayadhu/Neeraagaram. Do try out this this healthy and easy bowl of Neeraagaram and post your comments here. Meanwhile do check out other healthy Kanji and Porridge Varieties here.

Rice Kanji – Special Kanji Made for Amman/Rice Kanji Recipe

Friends, I will not be in town for another 5 days, I am taking a short break, will be missing you all. Before going on break, I wanted to post my favourite and delicious “Rice Kanji” which I prepared for amman and sharing it with you all. Om Shakthi…

There are different types of rice kanji prepared in South India like the roasted rice kanji, rice kanji with vegetables, rice kanji made with brown rice and so on. But this is a very special “Rice Kanji – Prepared for Amman” as neivedhyam in Nagapattinam and nearby districts.  This rice kanji is prepared in large scale instead of kezhvaragu koozh and distributed to everyone after the special prayers are done to amman. Along with this kanji the other neivedhyams prepared for amman are paanagam, neermor, maavilagu, thullu maavu etc. Since my parents are from Nagapattinam and Thanjavore we follow the same tradition of preparing rice kanji during the month of Aadi and offer it to amman and do the special prayers. I had mentioned about this rice kanji in few of my earlier post, but it is time for me to post this recipe as well. I will very soon be posting other types of kanji in my future post. For now...
