Congee is a type of porridge which is usually prepared using rice or gruel in many Asian countries. The word congee is derived from Kanji ( Tamil ), which is the prominent food of Tamilnadu. The preparation of congee and the side dish for it varies according to places. Though the congee is eaten as such, additional ingredients like meat, chicken, fish etc are added as flavourings. In my recent visit to china trip, had a great chance to taste the authentic chicken flavoured congee with delicious toppings, so thought of trying the same with a healthier version by using organic oats. I have used chicken powder in this recipe which can also be replaced with stock cubes or fresh chicken pieces. In this recipe, I have used the organic porridge oats which I received from Goindiaorganic. Absolutely loved the quality of it and the texture was so perfect with less gooey consistency.
