2. Cover and keep the pitcher in the sun for 3-4 days, stirring at least once daily with a clean spoon.























3. Once fermented, taste the kanji. When it’s ready it gives a tangy and fermented taste. I taste it daily just to understand the change in flavor, its food chemistry in action! Store the kanji in the refrigerator.

4. Serve chilled. Mix before serving. Carrots, Beets and Green Chilies can be eaten.
