A ready-to-cook porridge mix was developed by incorporating dried chicken meat powder, pearl millet flour and jack fruit bulb powder and was compared with control porridge mix containing pearl millet, sorghum and jack fruit bulb powder. Both control and treatment porridge mixes were vacuum packed and analysed for physico-chemical, microbiological and sensory characteristics on days 0, 30, 60 and 90 of ambient temperature storage. Color values such as a* and b* values, proximate principles such as protein, fat, and ash values and scores for sensory attributes were higher for the treatment porridge mix than control. The study showed that the ready-to-cook porridge mix incorporated with chicken powder was shelf-stable for 90 days at ambient temperature. The cost of production of the developed porridge mix was Rs. 653.34 per kg. The ready-to-cook porridge mix with chicken meat powder could be used for the fast and easy preparation of a meal with high nutritive value and with good sensory scores.
