Last winter I passed by a group of Gujrati speaking ladies , one of whom was saying " Fada ni khichdi kari hathi. Bahu fine laagi.. " I'd never heard the name nor did I know what the main ingredient was . A general (superficial) google search later, I initially dismissed it as a fanciful name for the 'namkeen dalia ", I'd been making. Out of curiosity for Tarla aunty's version and of course having successfully attempted some of her recipes earlier, I checked the recipe on this website and noticed that the ingredients were considerably different although the method was probably simpler than what I was doing. What I was cooking was wholesome but the gujarati version as interpreted by Tarla aunty was exactly what you could call a complete one dish meal with the nutrients also intact. If I have the vegetables required, then this is what I cook on the spur. The best part is that I still haven't tasted it made by an authentic gujarati or even at a restaurant. All the same it tasted good each time I made it and my family agrees. Thank-you Tarla aunty!
