Me and my husband loves ulundu kanji, specially he loves it so much. Commonly we add rice instead of wheat in the kanji and have it. But i prefer this recipe rather for the rice version. I learned this recipe from my mom and it is my all time fav. This is very healthy recipe and has no fat at all. Specially this is one of the best food to give for diabetic patients. The wheat which i used in this recipe is called as oosi gothumai, it is thin shaped wheat which is slightly broken. But you can use regular coarse variety of broken wheat which is also known as dalia or samba gothumai ravai. And the dal is broken black urad dal with husk in it, you can add whole urad dal with husk in it.
The garlic which we add in this recipe give a nice taste and flavour to the kanji. So go ahead and add tons of them in this kanji if you love garlic taste. So go ahead and give this recipe a try, you will love it for sure.
