Malabar Nombu Recipes – Nombu Thura Vibhavangal

Ramadan is the holiest month of the year for Muslims. Observance of fasting and prayers during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. This month is believed to be the one in which Holy Quran was revealed. During the holy month of Ramzan, believers observe fast. No food or drink is taken during daytime. The concept of fasting is considered to be the third pillar of Islamic faith. It is a means of self-control and learning. Fasting enables one to be compassionate towards the less fortunate lot and strive to alleviate their misery. By dusk, after the evening prayers are offered, the believers break the fast. This ceremony is called Nombu Thura.

The fast can be broken by eating dates or drinking water, if the former is not available. In places like Hyderabad, people break their fast with Haleem because it has a rich taste and is quite filling. In southern states such as Tamil Nadu and Kerala, Muslims break their fast with Nombu Kanji, a rich filling rice dish of porridge consistency, cooked for hours with meat and vegetables. This is often served with Bonda, Bajji and Vadai.

Thari Kanji Recipe

Thari Kanji – Malabar Nombu Recipes

Thari Kanchi is not a kanchi (gruel or porridge) at all. It is a light sweetened hot drink made from milk with very little semolina and seasoned with nuts and raisins. Traditionally had while breaking the fast in the evening, it is supposed to settle the stomach. It also eases the cramps that arise from the sudden rush of food after a day of abstinence from any food and water. Semolina is known to be easily digestible and is given to kids as porridge. Though this drink, once seasoned with ghee (clarified butter) and nuts, is nowhere near the lumpy porridge.
