Life can be tough without comforting khichdi to keep you company! One of the homeliest of meals, khichdi is satiating and soothing to the palate.
Here’s an innovative twist, we have used fibre-rich barley to make this khichdi. A good replacement for rice, barley combines very well with moong dal and mild spices to create a comfort food that keeps you satiated for a long time due to its high fibre content.
Apart from curbing cholesterol, barley also helps control weight gain. To this effect, we have also avoided ghee and used heart-friendly olive oil instead. Have this easy-to-make Barley and Moong Dal Khichdi with a bowl of low-fat curds, to make a light but wholesome One Dish Meals .
