Kichdi (healthy recipe)

Kichdi is the recipes that take less time and easy to cook, since during post pregnancy one won’t have so much of patience to do an elaborate version and this can be made faster in a pressure cooker.  If this too seems to be a long procedure, just add all the ingredients together and cook it!  All the steps below are just to enhance the flavor. I should say that this is one healthy food which needed at this time. This dish is very healthy for children.

Ingredients:

1 Cup old basmati rice
1/2 cup split yellow moong dal
2 tblsp oil or Clarified butter
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp crushed black pepper

1/2 cup chopped Cilantro
5 Curry leaves
salt to taste
5 cups of water

Method:

1. Wash the rice and dal and put them in the vessel you want to put in the pressure cooker or directly.  Whichever way you prefer.
2. Take a saute pan.  Add oil, once warm add all the whole spices and saute them for a few min. in a med. flame.
3. Then add tumeric, ginger and saute them with a little bit of salt.
4. Transfer the mixture to the rice and dal and pour water and add salt after tasting the water.
5. Pressure cook it or leave it on the stove in low heat until its all mushy and well done.

You can have it as it is or with your choice of Indian pickles.
