The mughals were known to name certain dishes after themselves to signify where they were invented. A brilliant khichdi made from rice and moong, this preparation is flavoured with whole garam masalas. Freshly grated coconut and cashewnuts are used to add volume and flavoring to the khichdi. Enjoy it with fresh curds, papad and pickle.

As our family is from South India, we are not used to such type of foods. It was really a treat to the taste buds with totally different taste and all of us loved it.
