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.

  1. Wash and soak the dal and rice together in enough water for at least 30 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Combine the dal and rice with the turmeric powder, peppercorns, salt and 4½ cups of water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 4 whistles.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  4. Just before serving, 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.
