Rice porridge cooked in coconut milk is a comfort food for summer. It is soothing to the body and does not involve much work near the fire.  It is cooked on a slow flame, with an occasional stir. This is a  typical food of South Kanara.

To make the coconut milk : Grate one coconut and put it in warm water for sometime. Take some coconut and blend it in the mixer with a little water. Strain in a colander. Keep the husk aside and repeat the procedure for rest of the coconut.

The used husk can be used again by adding water. I hope you liked this recipe , do leave a comment.
