All of us must have had the Indian traditional Khichdi, which is essentially dal (Lentil) and chawal (Rice) cooked together and boiled to make a blended thick mixture with gravy consistency. It is considered to be best for stomach and very light in digestion. So when someone is ill, a light diet comprises mainly of Khichdi, Dal Daliya , etc. I relish Khichdi even when I am not ill. There are several ways in which we can combine different dal and chawal to make it. The important part is Ghee ka Tadka. Without ghee, Khichdi is simply an incomplete meal. Yes if you are not keeping well, you may lower the quantity of Ghee. Also accompaniments are Papad and Achar..
Well talking about the nutrition, Its very digestive, rich in starch, proteins, its a complete meal in itself. My version is an innovation out of necessity. In past, my father-in-law was recommended a strict diet of Dal Daliya or Khichdi for around a week’s time by doctors. During this time, although he didnt complain but I was bored by making similar meals for him. So I though one day to mix dal and chawal in same ratio and put a ghee tadka like we do in Pulao and result was the amazing Khari dal chawal Khichdi. So no extra water just as much as needed to boil it for 1/2 whistle. He liked it a lot and the change was welcomed by others too. Then on my kiddo started asking for this khichdi for quite a long time.
Sometimes I feel bad is not that bad and if we are positive, we may get good out of anything..
So what are you thinking ?? I am being positive that you would give this Khichdi a try and get back to me about how it turned out to be…
