Sumptuous khichdi gets an exciting double-twist in this recipe. With the addition of spices, garlic and coconut, the khichdi itself gets a little richer, but when served with a tongue-tickling curry sauce, it becomes nonpareil! The tomato-based sauce is prepared with a masala paste that features almost all the spices in your larder, along with poppy seeds and nuts, which gives it a rich texture as well. Although you can experience the combined flavours of all the ingredients in the Spicy Khichdi with Curry Sauce, the magical aroma of aniseeds stands out in a sharp yet irresistible way.
