A tasty khichdi made of healthy jowar, this one-dish meal is also quite exotic due to the choice of veggies used in it. Coloured capsicum and zucchini bring in not just colour but also a host of beneficial nutrients and antioxidants, just as the whole grain makes the jowar khichdi rich in protein, fibre and iron.
