Nombu kanji

I adapted the simple version of nombu kanji from my friend.The fenugreek is the key ingredient for this recipe.I used kurunai arisi (broken rice) and more vegetables.It is such a comforting food for any day.The ideal reason for having it after fasting is it digests faster and shoots up the energy.
