Medical Porridge, Karkitaka Kanji

As Karkitadaka or Cancer starts today, as the Sun traverses sidereal Cancer, a medicinal porridge called Karkataka Kanji is fancied heavily by Ayurvedists. This is the rainy season in Kerala and no agri work can be done due to the heavy rains lashing the state. So the Ayurvedic physicians took this month for revitalisation and rejuvenation. 

The constituents of Karkitaka Kanji are Bala, Attibala, Urinnigi, Thiruthalli, Navarra Rice, jeerakam 3 et al.
