You can buy fresh milk from Hateno Village. Simply visit the shop in the village and purchase fresh milk for a reasonable price. You can also buy Hylian rice from the same shop but you must save your rupees and instead look for a free method to acquire the rice.

To acquire the Hylian rice for free, you must visit the Midla Woods and start cutting down the grass using any type of blade to acquire the second ingredient for the Porridge.


Lastly, to find Sundelions you can head over to the Sky Islands and find a bunch of these Golden Flowers in the coordinates: 1904, 1213, 1255.

Once all the ingredients are gathered, return to the Kakariko Village and use the cooking pot in front of Lasli to cook the Porridge for her grandmother to complete the Gloom-Borne Illness side quest in Zelda: Toears of the Kingdom and get rewarded with the Energizing Veggie Porridge.
