Sometimes I have weeks where there’s a lot of eating out and come the weekend, I’m just craving simple home cooked meals. My go-to quick and easy recipe for times like that is this Dal Khichdi.
The word Khichdi literally means a culinary mix of lentils, rice and spices, almost like a spiced mixture. It is considered light on the stomach and tends to be served with pickle and poppadoms.
I tend to use moong dal in my khichdi as I find moong dal is easy on the tummy and digests easily. But feel free to use toor dal if you’d prefer it.
Serve hot with some carrot salad, roasted poppadoms and pickle and don’t forget a generous topping of ghee. Believe me when I say that ghee will change the flavour of the dal khichdi all together. Its like a marriage made in heaven.
