Vegetables add a splash of colours and refreshing textures to what might otherwise be a boring khichdi.
The Vegetable Bulgur Wheat Khichdi is a wonderfully tasty and super healthy dish that’s ideal for those with diabetes, kidney problems or high blood pressure.
Not only is the recipe low salt, but it’s made out of bulgur wheat, an ingredient that is low in phosphorous and potassium as compared to other cereals.
Apart from injecting some fun into the dish, the veggies also bring in loads of fibre, which helps to manage sugar levels better.
Even though there is less salt in this khichdi, the taste is not compromised as it has a good balance of taste-enhancing ingredients like ginger, garlic, tomatoes, onions and spice powders. The recipe uses very little oil, and so you should keep stirring continuously to prevent the spices and vegetables from sticking to the pan and getting charred.
