What are Khichdis?

  1. What is Khichdi?   Think comfort food, and khichdi is the first option that comes to mind. Easy to make, a one pot dish dinner, and a one dish meal, the khichdi is the epitome of convenience. Breakfast, brunch, supper or dinner, if you want a simple meal in a hurry, look no further than the humble khichdi.    Khichdi is usually made with a combination of grains and dals, cooked till soft and mushy, just a little thicker than porridge. This makes it comforting to the palate and easy to digest too. Most commonly, khichdi is made of rice and moong dal. This Dal Khichdi is perhaps the homeliest meal that one can think of, the only food you can think of having after a bout of fever or a depressing day! 
  2. Khichdi can also be made with broken wheat, sooji, millets, barley, oats, and so on. Try the Fada ni KhichdiOats KhichdiBuckwheat Khichdi or Barley Khichdi.    The simplest khichdi is flavoured with turmeric and jeera tempered in ghee. However, more spices and veggies too can be added to make more elaborate khichdis like the Handi Khichdi. By adding more vegetables, you can make the khichdi more balanced and just right to have as a complete breakfast on any day. Have a go at the Tarkari KhichdiBajra Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi, and Vegetable Bulgur Wheat Khichdi
  3. You can unleash your creativity and make khichdis with mind-boggling combinations of ingredients. You can even bring in international veggies, as in the Zucchini Bajra Khichdi, which brings zucchini and colourful bell pepper into the equation. Khichdis can be made quickly and conveniently in the microwave too, as in the Sprouted Moong Khichdi.    Khichdi is one Indian dish that surpasses all regional barriers. It is consumed all over the country, and by Indians all over the world. However, every region has its favourites and special signature khichdis. Have a go at the special Makai ni Khichdi from Gujarat, the Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi from Rajasthan and the Bengali Style Brown Rice Khichdi
  4. Khichdi is an anytime, anywhere dish. When you are in a good mood and want to make something that reminds you of mom’s cooking. When you are depressed and need a pick-me-up. When you are in a hurry but want to eat something nourishing. When you have abused your stomach at a party and want to comfort it the next day. When you are an amateur but want to make something that will warm your loved ones’ hearts. There is a khichdi for every occasion... pick what you want from our constantly growing vibrant collection.
