I love Khichdis.. mainly because on a lazy day its so easy to prepare and it had all the vegs and daal in it and i dont need a curry or side dish for it! LOL!! Luckily both my kiddos loves it too. :)

When Meeta my gujrati friend told me about this recipe i first made it with ponni rice as she suggested. But my kiddos didnt like it. Then i tried it with Basmati rice and it came out really tasty and kiddos loves it :)

Srivalli, here comes another entry from my blog to your Rice Mela!

  • Soak the rice and daal for an hour.
  • In a pressure cooker heat the ghee and add the whole spices and onions.
  • when the onion is brown add the garlic to it.
  • When the garlic is brown add water to it and let it boil.
