Bengali style khichdi is aromatic and also laden with veggies and dal. In short, it is a flavoursome and power-packed meal.

The use of crushed spices instead of whole or powdered ones brings about a significant change in the recipe – you will notice it when you prepare the khichdi.

Madam, If you will excuse me, Bengali Khichuri is not like this really. At least not what I know of. Please can you upload correct recipy? Indeed there are not even subtle difference between East and West Bengali cuisine. That also you may look for. Regards, PKM
