Khichdi

When i don’t feel like cooking anything but want some comfort food, I usually make khichdi. Also, my 15 months old son is having khichdi since he was first introduced to solid foods and I must say he loves having khichdi. Its rich in carbohyrates and proteins. I usually make this with the combination of 2 or 3 lentils and they are yellow dal/Arhar dal, orange dal/masoor dal andwhole moth beans. So, here’s the recipe to my version of khichdi. I usually have this with ghee on the top and pickles where as my husband wants to have his khichdi with yogurt and pickles.

1/4 cup whole moth beans washed and soak in water for couple of hours
1 tablespoon of cumin seeds

1 tablespoon of oil
4 cups of water
Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS
 
Wash and drained the mixture of rice and dals together and put into the pressure cooker along with tumeric powder, salt to taste and 3 cups water and cook.

When the cooker has cooled, stir the khichdi, check for consistency and add more water if needed.

On medium heat add oil in a pan, then add cumin seeds, wait until it gets brown. Pour this on the khichdi, be careful while doing this coz it gets splutter when hot oil touches the liquid. Give a boil to the khichdi and serve hot .
