Diya Bath or Palan Kanji

Today my recipe for breakfast of the recipes from on Buffer is from SriLanka. Most of the recipes from  SriLankan cuisine is very common in Indian cuisine. Specially breakfast dishes like idiyappang, porota, Appam and even many curries. When I was searching for breakfast recipes from SriLankan cuisine. I found this very traditional breakfast dish which is very close to Indian cuisine specially Kerala cuisine. Which is well known as Diya Bath or Palan Kanji in Srilankan cuisine. This is a old traditional breakfast dish, actually a very healthy breakfast and this keeps your body cool. Also we have a similar recipe in Tamilnadu and Andhra cuisine but in Andhra we use butter milk in the place of coconut milk. First I thought how that will taste with coconut milk, but the sweet taste of fresh coconut milk with this crunchy onions and green chillies and fresh curry leaves flavor make this Palan Kanji a wonderful breakfast. Yes always use fresh coconut milk for this recipe caned coconut milk don't give that flavor and taste. Simple recipe but very tasty and healthy breakfast, this keeps you full for long time.
Recipe adopted from here and here

Green chilli   ---  1 tab sp chopped
Curry leaves  ---  few chopped
Salt to taste
Thick coconut milk  ---  100 ml
Lemon juice  --   fro a half lemon
1. For this recipe we are going to use left over rice from last night.
2. Take 2 cups left over rice in a bowl and add two cups of water and leave side to ferment for over night.
3. Next morning take out the rice from water and squeeze all the water and take the rice in a other bowl and add all other ingredients and  mix well and serve for breakfast.
or you can saute onion, chillies and curry leaves with little oil add thick coconut milk and switch off the heat and add rice mix well and finely add lemon juice mix well and serve for breakfast.
