This South Indian Mixed Vegetable Khichdi is fondly called as ‘kootanchoru’ or ‘kadhamba sadham’ and is often made when there is a family get-together because it is flavoursome and satiating, and makes a convenient one-dish meal.
It is loaded with veggies, and the paste gives it a nice mouth-watering flavour that does away with the need for any accompaniments.
We have made this traditional recipe a bit more healthier by removing coconut from the paste, and replacing white rice with brown rice.
Nevertheless, we assure you that it tastes just as awesome! Loaded with lots of veggies, this fibre-rich recipe is also good to control high blood pressure.
