Pazhamkanji Recipe പഴംകഞ്ഞി – Traditional Kerala Breakfast Recipe
PazhamKanji is a traditional Kerala breakfast recipe. Rice is cooked in the afternoon and excess water is drained. After the rice cools down to room temperature, it is soaked fully in water and stored in an earthen clay pot. This covered pot with soaked rice is left overnight at regular room temperature. The rice would ferment by the next morning. Fermented rice is eaten for breakfast with a side dish.
Pazhamkanji health benefits:
Pazhamkanji has rare B6 & B12 vitamins, which are not easily available in other food supplements. This is the richest source of vitamin B12. The bacteria that grow in the intestines because of consuming this rice, safeguards the internal organs and keeps them fit and ready. Consuming this rice helps quicker digestion and wards off ageing, bone-related ailments and muscular pains.
The lactic acid bacteria break down the anti-nutritional factors in rice resulting in an improved bioavailability of micro-nutrients and minerals such as iron, potassium and calcium by several thousand percentage points. Fermented rice gave the energy, the nutrition and the cooling effect that needed for a full day of manual labour.
