Khichu fans claim it to be the tastiest snack in the world! Indeed, piping hot khichu, with its doughy consistency and soothing taste, is sure to warm your soul and remind you of home.
While khichu is usually made with grain-based flours like rice flour or jowar flour, here we present an interesting variant made with moong dal.
The Yellow Moong Dal Khichu has a pleasant colour and satiating flavour. It tastes awesome with a splash of Koro Sambhar and a drizzle of oil!
Make sure you serve this khichu really hot, immediately after preparation as khichu tend to thicken and lose their characteristic consistency as they cool down.
Try other khichu variants like Whole Rice Khichu and Jowar Khichu .

- Add the prepared moong dal paste, mix well using a rolling pin and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till it leaves the sides of the pan.
