At last add the coconut milk and simmer for 15 minutes.

Variations
1) You can also add minced meat or chicken or carrots.

2) Do not add coconut milk last, instead heat 1 tbsp ghee and add few curryleaves, switch off the flame add the coconut milk to the curryleaves, pour it immediately on kanji and mix well.
The advantage of this method is you can prepare the kanji in advance and when you want to serve heat the kanji and add the tempered coconut milk and serve,
