Moong Khichadi

This has been one of the current favourites with my hubby and daughter. Every time I am hard pressed for time and I offer to make this, I find them nodding and smiling in anticipation. Both of them are not picky eaters, they eat almost everything I prepare, and don’t complain!!!!!I know what u all must be thinking, Lucky gal!!Well, that’s true. But when it come to this khichadi, they always do justice to the dish….by finishing it!!!So here goes the recipe…

1/2 cup rice, washed and drained

1/2 cup moong dal, washed and drained

1 big tomato

7-8 flakes of garlic, chopped fine

2 green chilles, chopped fine

2 tbsp ghee

Mustard seeds, jeera, hing, turmeric powder for tadka

Coriander leaves, chopped fine

Salt for taste

Combine the washed and drained rice and dal together and add the chopped tomato, a pinch of turmeric, hing and jeera and some salt and pressure cook. Note that you need to add some more water than the usual to this khichadi so that it gets a running consistency, after being cooked. Once the khichadi is done, it is time for the tadka.
