For making the rice khichu

  1. For making the rice khichu, in a deep non-stick pan, take cumin seeds. Also, you can toss some sesame seeds for an added flavour.
  2. Add green chillies. You can add more or less chillies as per the spice level you can handle. Alternatively, you can add green chilli paste or even put some ginger to make the khichu recipe more delightful.
  3. Add soda bi-carb and salt. My grandmother makes use of papad khar while preparing the khichu. Also, be cautious while adding salt as soda will also make khichu a bit salty.
  4. Pour 4 cups of water and mix well. You can even put some fresh coriander leaves to elevate the flavour of rice khichu.
  5. Boil on a high flame for 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Once the water starts boiling, add the oil.
  7. Add the rice flour and mix vigorously using a whisk or a flat ladle. You can even make use of a wooden rolling pin to mix the khichu mixture. While you are stirring, within a minute, the rice flour will absorb most of the water and becomes a thick, sticky dough. Khichu can be prepared with other flour like bajra flour, jowar flour, nachni flour or whole wheat flour. For variation, you can even use a combination of flour.
  8. Cook on a low flame for another 3 to 4 minutes or till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, while stirring it continuously to ensure that it is not sticking to the bottom of the pan. Switch off the flame and it is ready to serve!
  9. Divide the gujarati rice khichu into 4 equal portions. Put a portion of the khichu in an individual cup.
  10. Pour  2 tsp of oil evenly over it.
  11. Finaly sprinkle little chilli powder or koro sambhar. Here is the perfect recipe to make koro sambar it at home.
  12. Serve the rice khichu immediately.
