VEGETABLE KHICHDI

Right from few days I was keep on asking each of my friends regarding how they prepare their khichdi. Finally last weekend I tryed. Vegetable Khichdi is the comfort meal made from rice and lentils with the addition of various types of vegetables. This is the food with full of nutritious value specially for infants and also for the adults. Its very good for the infants because its mushy type and also its easily digestible. Also at the time of having cold and raging fever this khichdi works really well. I served with spicy salmon fry.


INGREDIENTS.

1/2 Cup Basmati rice.

1/4 cup Both Moong and Masoor dal.

1/2 Cup Vegetables.(I added carrots, beans, cauliflower, brocolli, potato, spinach, peas)

2 tbsp Chopped Onions.

2 tbsp Chopped tomato.

3 Pods of Garlic.

Pinch of Turmeric Powder.

Pinch of Chilli Powder.

Pinch of Garam Masala (Optional).

Salt to taste.

2 1/2 Cup Water.

Coriander leaves for garnish.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Wash the rice and lentils well and mix together. Add all the ingredients with water and cook in pressure cooker. When its done, serve hot with a drop of ghee. Garnish with coriander leaves.


I am sending this recipe to ''SRIVALLI'S- MY LEGUME LOVE AFFAIR''

Enjoy!!
