Best 13 Comforting and Satiating Khichdi Recipes

After a long and tiring day when your bones are almost giving away, after a deadly fever that has left you like a rag, or on a cold winter’s day that freezes your spine, what could rescue you but a bowl of khichdi! The humble khichdi is perhaps the homeliest dish one can think of. Comforting and satiating, it takes care of your tummy and spirits.

However, one complaint most people have against this wonderful dish is that it often turns out to be monotonous. That is because a lot of people are unaware of the versatility of this sumptuous rice dish, and keep preparing the same old khichdi recipe over and over again.

Khichdis such as Panch Dhan Khichdi, Palak Khichdi, Bajra, Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi and many more can be magical one-pot meals, loaded with energy, nutrients and exciting flavours. With the rice and dal, you can toss in myriad other ingredients including veggies and masalas, to transform this easy dish into a memorable meal. Try our latest khichdi recipes, and you will be amazed by how exciting the seemingly humble khichdi can actually be!

Cook up your favourite khichdi, top it with a dollop of ghee, and enjoy it piping hot with a cup of  kadhi, a crisp papad and perhaps a tangy kachumber too.

Khichdi is one of the homeliest of dishes, which revives and comforts you after a tough day! It is easy and quick to make, yet satiating, nutritious and tasty too, which is probably what makes it popular with almost everybody. Whole Wheat and Vegetable Khichdi is a dish that is ideal for those with diabetes and high cholesterol, as rice has been replaced with whole wheat. This khichdi, spiced with a mixture of Indian spices, tastes best when served hot with a bowl of curds.

This mouth-watering khichdi makes a complete meal with just a cup of curds and a papad because it is so self-contained in terms of flavours. From garlicky and tangy to mildly spicy, this delicious Palak Khichdi has everything you would love to have in a one-dish meal .With greens, rice and dal, it is really sumptuous too. Although the list of ingredients seems long, you will find that they are all common, everyday ingredients that you are sure to find in your kitchen.

Wholesome and filling, the Panchamel Khichdi is more than a meal in a bowl! With rice and four different dals, cooked along with a basketful of crunchy vegetables, tomatoes and spice powders, this Khichdi features myriad textures, flavours and colours, making it a delight to behold and relish.
You must have heard of Bajra Khichdi, a famous Rajasthani delicacy. While that is a wholesome dish, here is something even more nourishing, fortified with more healthy stuff like whole moong, green peas and tomatoes. These not only add more crunch and tang to the khichdi, but also add more fibre, iron and protein, making the Bajra, Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi a complete meal in its own right.

Khichdi is a wonderful, versatile Indian food. It is satiating and easy to prepare, and fits perfectly into any meal, be it lunch or dinner. It also lends itself to a lot of innovation, and you can come up with varied versions with unique combinations of dals, veggies and spices. Masoor Dal and Palak Khichdi is a very wholesome recipe, which includes healthy spinach and energy-giving potatoes along with simple spices. Indeed, it is fit to be called a meal in a bowl!

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.

Sometimes we yearn for the soothing comfort of homemade khichdi, but also feel like having something spicier. When in two minds, go for the Spicy Green Moong Dal Khichdi. Made of rice and wholesome green moong dal, this flavourful khichdi gets its punch from sautéed onion and garlic, along with a traditional tempering of spices and spice powders. Serve hot with kadhi, for a homely meal that warms the heart.

Sumptuous khichdi gets an exciting double-twist in this recipe. With the addition of spices, garlic and coconut, the khichdi itself gets a little richer, but when served with a tongue-tickling curry sauce, it becomes nonpareil! The tomato-based sauce is prepared with a masala paste that features almost all the spices in your larder, along with poppy seeds and nuts, which gives it a rich texture as well. Although you can experience the combined flavours of all the ingredients in the Spicy Khichdi with Curry Sauce, the magical aroma of aniseeds stands out in a sharp yet irresistible way.

Ever thought of making a khichdi with barley? Try it once, and you will want to keep repeating this masterpiece in your kitchen. Made of barley and a horde of veggies, this tasty dish is colourful and attractive. An exotic combination of veggies gives it a nice juicy crunch, while everyday ingredients like cumin seeds and green chillies give the Barley Khichdi a soothing and lingering flavour. This satiating dish is loaded with antioxidants that help to fight free radicals and increase your immunity, as well as abundant fibre that helps to cleanse your system and lose weight as well. Enjoy the Barley Khichdi hot and fresh.
Delicious masala-stuffed vegetables, rice and dal are carefully cooked together in this one of a kind recipe. A great one dish meal, Toovar Dal and Mixed Vegetable Masala Khichdi when served with buttermilk, also makes a fabulous potluck lunch.

Cooked rice and dal are layered with a special gravy made with bohri masala, and topped with deep-fried onions. The texture after baking and the confluence of flavours make the bohri khichdi an experience par excellence!

Life can be tough without comforting khichdi to keep you company! One of the homeliest of meals, khichdi is satiating and soothing to the palate. Here’s an innovative twist, we have used fibre-rich barley to make this khichdi. A good replacement for rice, barley combines very well with moong dal and mild spices to create a comfort food that keeps you satiated for a long time due to its high fibre content. Apart from curbing cholesterol, barley also helps control weight gain. To this effect, we have also avoided ghee and used heart-friendly olive oil instead. Have this easy-to-make Barley and Moong Dal Khichdi with a bowl of low-fat curds, to make a light but wholesome One Dish Meals .

This dish is cooked in a traditional Indian deep iron pan called "handi". It is believed that cooking in iron utensils increases the iron content of food, however rice is also naturally rich in iron, so you can be double sure that this recipe will boost your haemoglobin levels. Marinating the vegetables and rice in spices enhances the flavour of this dish, but ensure that you marinate it for at least 30 minutes for best results.
