Sooji Porridge

 

 

 

Sooji porridge

its sweet.

its delicious

its  a thick liquid porridge

we celebrate eid in sri Lanka with a breakfast of string hoppers or pittu or sometimes both and side dishes are basically milk gravy, chicken curry, beef curry, pol sambol and a sweet sooji porridge.

the sweetness of the jaggery and the aroma of the pandan leaves fill the dinning table leaving  us no patients to try it later rather encouraging to drink or eat it immediately by adding to a few extra string hoppers or pittu.
