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!
- Heat the ghee in a pressure cooker and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the rice, salt and 3 cups of water, mix well and pressure cook for 5 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Whisk the mixture well and cook on a slow flame for 5 to 7 minutes or till a thick consistency is obtained.
- Serve immediately.
