This khichdi, which innovatively combines bajra, zucchini and colourful capsicum, looks and tastes good! Bajra is highly alkaline, which makes it very effective against acidity.
The Zucchini Bajra Khichdi also goes easy on the spices and oil, making it all the more friendly to a sensitive stomach. Best of all, the crunchy vegetables and green chilli paste added to the khichdi impart a balanced flavour and rich aroma to the khichdi, so it can be had all by itself or with a simple accompaniment of curd or kadhi.
All this makes the Zucchini Bajra Khichdi a convenient One Dish Meals for those suffering from acidity, safe to have even at night.
