Moong dal khichdi is very popular as a comfort food. It is sure to soothe you and make you feel better when you are off colour, especially if you are down with a fever or stomach ache! dal and rice cooked together with peppercorns and flavoured with ghee, it is a light and healthy meal despite the rich texture that the ghee and dal impart to it. In many gujarati houses, friday is khichdi day.

Ingredients

Method
  1. Wash and soak the moong dal and rice together. Drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix the dal and rice with the turmeric powder, peppercorns, 4 1/2 cups of water and salt.
  3. Pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles and set aside for 20 minutes till the steam has been released.
  4. Remove from the pressure cooker, add the ghee and mix well.
  5. Serve hot with kadhi and papad.

Variation: green moong dal khichdi

  1. Use green moong dal (split green gram) instead of the yellow moong dal, and use 2 cloves (laung / lavang) and a small piece of cinnamon (dalchini) instead of the peppercorns.
