Moong dal khichdi is very popular as a comfort food. It is sure to soothe you and make you feel better when you are off colour, especially if you are down with a fever or stomach ache!

Dal and rice cooked together with peppercorns and flavoured with ghee, it is a light and healthy meal despite the rich texture that the ghee and dal impart to it. In many Gujarati houses, Friday is Khichdi day.
