The word fever is termed when our body exceeds the normal body temperature which is caused by wide variety of illness. A normal body temperature varies in each individual and also depending on weather. The baseline is 98.6 F. Fever is usually caused by pyrogens (fever producing substance which includes bacteria, virus,fungi, drugs,toxins)
Normally fever persists for about a day or two, exceeding more than that is said to be high grade or chronic fever. 

  • So during that time the digestive system has a obstacles in doing its normal function : ) 
  • So traditionally we always prepare Kanji(porridge) using Rice/ Rava/ Barley which is prepared with plenty of water and so easily digested.
  • This recipe is a simple way of preparing porridge using rice and dal. 
  • I also believe that urinating more during fever can considerably bring down the fever. 
  • So kanji is one of the simple and easily digestible food preferred in our family for the one under medication.
