This mouth-watering khichdi makes a complete meal with just a cup of curds and a papad because it is so self-contained in terms of flavours. From garlicky and tangy to mildly spicy, this delicious Palak Khichdi has everything you would love to have in a one-dish meal .With greens, rice and dal, it is really sumptuous too. Although the list of ingredients seems long, you will find that they are all common, everyday ingredients that you are sure to find in your kitchen.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, As there is palak it will be a little bitter but is not very bitter, if you want add little more cooked rice or add little cream.
