Millet Flour Mor Kali (Buttermilk Porridge - Tamil Nadu Style)

 

           Mor Kali is a traditional recipe from Tamil Nadu. This is a simple and an easy porridge made of rice flour and buttermilk. It is served as breakfast or as a snack / tiffin when cut into slices. However, I gave a twist to the original recipe by replacing rice flour with Foxtail Millet flour. So it is a diabetic friendly recipe that can be relished guilt free. For more variations, you can also try Mor Kali with oats flour, ragi flour or any other millet flour. 




          Mor Kali can be had anytime of the day for a light and a healthy meal. It can be relished as it is. However, it tastes yummy when had with pickles, coconut chutney, fried curd chilies or idli podi (Gunpowder). So check out the step by step pictorial recipe to prepare this healthy version of Mor Kali.
