Khichdi- Lunch box idea for kids

   This dish was recommended by my friends and neighbours for varsha(My baby) ever since she was 1+   And the content was also so nourishing that it was all-in-one combo that is rice+dal+vegetables.  I also added 2 tsp of methi leaves to make it even more nourishing.  Though they are traditionally made like biryani procedure, like tempering with garam masalas and adding lot of spices, here i made completely non-spicy version for my kid.  This dish is also good for 60+ people.  There is nothing more nourishing , to consume this khickdi as a valuable evening snack, especially during rainy days.





   Spice-lovers do try spicy version and let me know...

    So ingredients you will need is one tsp jeera/saunf, onion one chopped, tomato one chopped, ginger garlic paste one tsp, mint leaves few, one cup of chopped veggies(carrot, beans, cauliflower, potato, methi leaves), half cup rice and quarter cup dal soaked together, one and a half cup water, mild spice mix(half a tsp salt, pinch of haldi, one tsp jeera powder, half a tsp dhanya powder)

      First heat oil and add jeera seeds, let it crackle.


This is followed by adding mint leaves, onion, ginger-garlic paste and tomato



Later on add chopped veggies and mild spice mix


And that add water and rice-dal mixture

 Pressure cook for three whistles

Yummy khichdi is ready to serve
