This makes it comforting to the palate and easy to digest too. Most commonly, khichdi is made of rice and moong dal. This Dal Khichdi is perhaps the homeliest meal that one can think of, the only food you can think of having after a bout of fever or a depressing day!

A recipe using oats and veggies, so loads of fiber... A perfect recipe for those with heart problems and high BP... The spices balance the flavour very well, though the salt is used in limited quantity.
