  • ½ cup Oats
  • 2 tbsp Moong dal
  • ½ tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 Tomato
  • ½ carrot
  • 1 green chili
  • 3 tsp oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 small cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp Red chili powder
  • ½ tsp Garam masala
  • 3 cups water
  • Salt as needed
  • Mint leaves few
  • Coriander leaves few
  • 2-3 tbsp thick coconut milk


  • Soak the moong dal in warm water for 10 mins
  • In a pan add oil and add bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves and 1 green chili, mint leaves, and 1 chopped onions.
  • Add a little salt and cook till the onions become translucent.
  • Add the ginger garlic paste and cook in medium flame for 2 minutes.
  • Once done add finely chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the finely chopped carrots to this now and cook for a minute.
  • Add in the red chili powder, garam masala, and turmeric powder.
  • Mix well and add the Oats and soaked moong dal.
  • Add 2.5 cups of water to this and add a little salt.
  • Let this boil and get cooked well. Add a little more water if you want to get the right consistency.
  • Once it completely done switch off the flame and add coconut milk. I used store-bought light coconut milk.
  • If you don’t have coconut milk you can add a few grated coconut.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.
  • If you are making with rice wash the rice and spread it on a clean towel.
  • Once the moisture is absorbed completely pulse it a few times in the mixie.
  • This will give a semi-broken rice, we call this as noi or kurunai.
  • Washing and drying process ensures even pulsing of the rice.
  • You can pressure cook it for 2-3 whistles while making with rice.



You can replace millets or quinoa instead of oats for making Ramadan nombu kanji.
