Last weekend the weather in my place was cloudy, rainy and we feel the cold, so according to the weather my hubby demands a hot, melt in mouth slurpy khechudi/khichuri/khichdi..I also like the idea because it's an easy to make simple healthy and yummy food..I made aloo bharta, fish fry and  Baigani(Brinjal fry/beguni) to accompany the khechudi and we enjoyed every bit of it..
So here it is:-)

Ingredients :-
  • Basmati Rice - 1 cup
  • Yellow Moong Dal - 1/2 cup
  • Potato - 1

  • Beans - 4-5
  • Green Peas - 1/2 cup
  • Cinnamon  - 1 stick
  • Tej Patta - 2
  • Cardmom - 2
  • Cloves - 4
  • Dry red chillies - 2
  • Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Hing(Asafoetida) - a pinch
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Green chilli - 1
  • Ginger - 1'' piece
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar - 1/2 tsp
  • Roasted cumin seeds powder - 1 tsp
  • Few chopped coriander leaves
  • Ghee or refined oil 
  • Water to cook - 7-8 cups

Method :-
  • Wash and soak basmati rice in water for 30 minutes.
  • Dry roast the Yellow moong dal till you get a nice aroma.
  • Wash and soak the yellow moong dal with water.
  • Wash, peel and cut the vegetables.
  • Grind the green chilli with ginger to a smooth paste.
  • Heat ghee in a handi, add cinnamon, tej patta, cardamom,cloves and dry red chillies and cumin seeds.
  • When the seeds started to splutter, add a pinch of  hing with the green chilli ginger paste.
  • Fry for a minute, add all the vegetables and further shallow fry them for 2-3 minutes.
  • Now drain the rice and dal from the water and add to the above handi.
  • Fry them for 1-2 minutes more then add turmeric powder and salt to taste.
  • Mix properly then add water with sugar and cook by covering the lid in a low to medium flame by stirring in between.
  • Cook until the rice and dal are fully cooked and became mushy.
  • Add roasted cumin seeds powder and coriander leaves.
  • Check out your desired thickness of water, if you want it more watery add some hot water and mix properly. If you want it thicker then cook it in medium to high flame for few more minute by stirring continuously. 
  • If you want a non veg version, you can always add shredded chicken in the above recipe and enjoy.
  • Serve it adding extra ghee on top of khechudi  with fries or have it like it is.
