Khichu is a traditional savoury dish made with rice flour, perked up with whole spices like jeera and spice powders like sambhar powder. It is enjoyed hot, when its texture is gooey and soft. Here, we recreate the same recipe with whole rice. Whole Rice Khichu has the same comforting texture, and is actually much more flavourful and aromatic, with a tempering of aromatic seeds, green chillies and other ingredients, and finally topped off with a spoonful of melted ghee, which causes a fresh aroma to burst out of the dish, luring everybody to it!
