To many, the phrase comfort food is synonymous with Khichdi, a nourishing and homely food that never fails to satiate.
In this recipe, we have combined high fibre oats with yellow moong dal to make a Nourishing Khichdi with a difference. Veggies add a welcome crunch to this recipe, while also bringing in their share of fibre and antioxidants.
Perfectly spiced with just a mild touch of salt, this dish makes a healthy treat when served with a bowl of low-fat curds.
