Ukadpendi

Many times you need something in the morning which is just warm and comforting. Whatever the weather is, you always feel like eating something soothing to the gut. But obviously we would like something that is not bland. This Maharashtra special, ukad or ukadpendi is one such dish, delicious, simple and easy to make.
Ukadpendi has a thick porridge like consistency. It consists of rice flour and besan mixed with buttermilk mixture. To make ukadpendi delicious roasted groundnuts are added on top with a simple tadka to finish with. To make it extra tasty I add a bit of amchur powder, red chilli powder and turmeric for a nice golden yellow colour.

This dish hardly has any oil in it and is rich in good carbs, some fibre and protein. Ukadpendi gets ready in no time and you can quickly make it. It is then a matter of just gulping down spoons of it after it reaches optimum warm temperature. It is slightly tangy and has all the warmth. Along with the many kinds of porridges I make, this is definitely one of them. Try more breakfast recipes from FOI, dosas, idlis, oats porridge, overnight oats with banana, milkshakes etc.
