Puli Kanji

Featured, Home Remedies, Seafood | September 27, 2015 | By


Puli Kanji is the equivalent of chicken soup in Western cultures, eaten when you are suffering from a cold or fever. This was made by my mother-in-law, and it tasted delicious! Serve with a slice of lemon, and squeeze lemon before eating. This is key to the flavour. Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. Red/Wild rice 1/2 cup
  2. Prawns cleaned ½ - 1 cup
  3. Green chillies 4 -6
  4. Garlic cloves - 2 bulbs (don't skimp on this!)
  5. Shallots 7-15 (shallots add flavour)
  6. Tamarind paste 1-4 teaspoons
  7. Salt to taste (salt is really important for flavour here, so make sure you taste the salt as you go)
  8. Water 5-6 cups
  9. Murunga Leaves 1-1.5 cups
Instructions
  1. Boil water in a pot and add rice.
  2. Wait until water is boiling again and add the prawns, diced garlic, diced onions, curry powder and cook until rice and prawns are soft.
  3. Add chillies and murunga leaves, tamarind paste and salt.
  4. Stir and simmer.
  5. Serve with a slice of lemon, and squeeze lemon before eating. This is key to the flavour. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. When cleaning murunga leaves, make sure you wash them on the stems before you remove them from the stems. Otherwise, it is hard to wash them.
  2. Serve with a slice of lemon, and squeeze lemon before eating. This is key to the flavour. Enjoy!
