Rice not being native to Rajasthan, the people there prefer to use wheat, bajra and jowar even for making typical rice dishes like khichdi and raab. This is one such innovative khichdi recipe adapted to use wheat. Hailing from Bikaner, as the name suggests, the Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi is a wholesome and nutritious combination of wheat and moong dal that has a fabulous flavour despite employing minimal spices! Enjoy this sumptuous khichdi with curds, ghee and a spicy mango pickle.
