Light on the stomach and comforting to the taste buds, this Rice Porridge, mildly-flavoured with cumin seeds, is ideal when you are feeling tired or unwell. It helps soothe your senses and top up your energy levels, slowly bringing you back to normal.

When the rice is cooked till soft, it is easy to digest and quickly gives a lot of energy, which is very important for those with diarrhea. Although we usually avoid ghee when the stomach is upset, a wee bit – as used in this recipe – is okay as it gives a soothing flavour and a little more energy too.

Cumin seeds too is a magic ingredient as far as this home remedy is concerned, because it gives a comforting flavour and also helps set the tummy right!

Can i make this by regular rice making method? (by straining) without the pressure cooker?

Tarla Dalal    You cannot cook rice by straining in case of porridge as you want the rice to cook till soft.

This is truly a stomach-friendly recipe....the tempering of ghee and cumin seeds lends this rice a flavourful touch. Believe me, this rice does wonders and pleases your palate when all of your other favourite foods are on a ''NO-NO'' list.
