There is no better way to end a busy day, than with a bowl of khichdi and curds. However, those who suffer from acidity often have to stay away from rice-based khichdi.

However, you can have this Barley Vegetable Khichdi instead, because barley is more stomach-friendly. The veggies give the khichdi a nice texture and flavour, which is improved further by a simple but effective tempering.

Make sure you serve this khichdi immediately as it is made with barley.

You can also try other stomach-friendly recipes like Green Peas and Methi Pulao and Curd Brown Rice .

A simple and wholesome recipe just as it's name suggests. Appropriate for a light fuss-free dinner. Best enjoyed with curd. Bottle Gourd and carrot up its health quotient, by making it a complete meal.
