A traditional khichdi made easier using the microwave and tastier by adding crunchy veggies. A basket of assorted veggies adds a riot of colours and flavours to the khichdi while a selection of spices and everyday ingredients like ginger and green chillies used in the right proportions impart immense flavour to it. Serve the Fada ni Khichadi hot with a bowlful of fresh curds. Try to serve it immediately on cooking, as reheating might dry it a little.
