Khichdi is the first and last word in Indian comfort foods. Whether it’s a busy day or a dull one, a serving of this one-dish meal is sure to put you back in the right track.

This particular version of the ever-popular Khichdi is made using unpolished brown rice, which is healthier than white rice. Being unpolished it has more fibre, and is more filling and nutritious.

Speckled with cloves, pepper and cumin, this Brown Rice Khichdi is very tasty and very desi! You are sure to feel satiated, whether you have it for lunch or supper.

The Khichdi tends to solidify as it cools, so adjust the consistency just before serving by adding hot water and little more salt.

Have a go at other recipes using brown rice like Brown Rice Risotto or Mushroom Brown Rice .
