Khichdi is light for the stomach, yet filling and nourishing. They often say soup is good for the soul, but I would say, "Khichdi is good for my soul". The aroma of this khichdi is irresistible, as it has been cooked with the aromatic spices. Buckwheat is commonly called as kutto or kutti no daro. This recipe is a variation of traditional khichdi in which rice is replaced with buckwheat due to its low glycemic index and high fibre content. Serve it with chilled Low Fat Curds, or Karela Kadhi, to make a satisfying meal.

Perfect recipe for the heathy. Buckwheat replaces rice and is an excellent complex carb which makes you full and a much better substitute for rice. Basically buck wheat will slow down the inulin release and keep your stomach fuller longer and it combines well with the protein. Toss in some mixed boiled vegetables to make a meal by itself.

This is the regular moong dal khichdhi with the innovation of buckwheat added to make it healthier for diabetics. If your health conscious, go for it.

This recipe is very good, expecially if you are trying to avoid white rice. I did not add cloves and peppercorns. Turned out great..
