Oats and Sago Kanji

Kanji is a type of porridge which we normally used to have during ramadhan after breaking our fast. In South India it's very common to have this type of kanji. Almost in every mosque they prepare this and people have it after breaking their fast. This is very light and keeps you satisfied.
Normally this is prepared using rice, vegetables, lentils and meat. In this recipe i replaced rice with oats and sago, which was really good. This would be so good to have immediately after breaking fast.
Ingredients:
Rolled Oats- 1/2 cup
Sago- 2 tbsp
Yellow split moong dhal- 2 tbsp
Chicken or minced meat- may be 50 gms( you just need very little)
Onion- 1 small sized chopped finely
Garlic pods- 4 to 5
Tomato- 1/2 medium sized chopped finely
Green chilli- 2 slit lenghtways
Carrot- 1 small sized chopped finely
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1/4 tsp
Methi seeds- 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- 4 to 5
Coconut milk or whole milk - 1/2 cup
Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves- 2 stalk finely chopped
Oil- 1/2 tbsp
Salt- as per taste
Method:
Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add methi , cumin seeds and finely chopped garlic pods. Add the finely chopped onions and chicken and saute well. Add all spice powders and mix well. Now add the carrots, tomatoes, oats, sago, lentils  along with the coconut milk, coriander leaves, curry leaves, salt  and 4 cups of water. Pressure cook for 4 to 5 whistle.
Serve the kanji warm by itself or with some bread.
