Vegetable khichdi

vegetable khichdi

Vegetable khichdi is a very light and nutritious meal. It’s wholesome and non- spicy. Since it is easy to digest, you can also serve it to a sick person. I eat vegetable khichdi because I find it very tasty and satisfying.
Recipe of vegetable khichdi
1 cup rice
1/2 cup moong dal (split green gram)
Mixed chopped vegetables like French beans, carrots, cauliflower, peas and potato
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
4 cups water
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
A pinch of hing (asafoetida)
1 1/2 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
1. Wash rice and moong dal separately.
2. In a vessel, heat ghee and add cumin seeds. When they change color, add hing. Add dal and vegetables. Cook stirring for 2-3 minutes. In the mean time put 4 cups of water to boil.
3. Add rice and turmeric powder and stir- fry again for 2 minutes.
4. Add boiling water and salt.
5. Cover and cook on a low heat till khichdi is completely cooked and all water is absorbed. Serve hot vegetable khichdi with curd.
