I had never heard of khichu before and I was surprised at how tasty it was for such a simple-looking dish! I often have it for breakfast. It is filling without being heavy. The only changes I make are to omit the chilli powder as I don't want it to be too hot and I put lemon juice instead of curds. Also mostly I cook it in the microwave, as suggested in one of the other khichu recipes for speed and ease. It's a quick and tasty way to consume nutrient-rich ragi.
