Multi Grain Masala Khichdi with Masala Kadhi

When you are craving for comfort food, for me its khichdi not just simple lentil and rice one, I need masala and spicy khichdi and if I can make gravy vegetable dish with it then its good , if not I go for kadhi and it has to have garlicky spicy red chili chutney too. Then I feel like I got the whole world in my plate.

But this time I take few other dals (lentils) with my rice and make it more healthy khichdi and added few more vegetables and enjoy it.



Ingredients for Khichdi

1/4 cup Yellow Mung dal
1/4 cup Massor Dal
1/4 cup Green Mung Dal (chilke wali)
1/4 cup Tuver dal
1 cup Rice
Few florets of Cauliflower
1 Small onion chopped
1/2 cup Pigeon peas
1 Potato in big cubes
1 Tbsp Oil
Few Whole pepper corns
1 or 2 Dry bayleafs
1  Small Cinnamon stick
Salt as per taste
1 tbsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp Red chili powder
1 tbsp Turmeric Powder
Fresh chopped Coriander leaves


Method:

Clean and wash all dals and rice and keep it aside.

You can pressure cook this too but I like my grains separate so I cook it in big pot.

Take big pot, add oil in it, when its hot, add whole spices (peppercorns, bay leaf, cinnamon stick)
When its sputter, add chopped onion in it and cook till its pink in color.

Add ginger garlic paste and all powder masala and cook for a minute .

Add vegetables and water to cook in it.

Add your dals and rice in it and salt and enough water to cook everything. Cover it and let it cook on low to medium heat.

Dont over mix it while its cooking, you dont want grain to fall apart.

When the water is gone and lentils and rice is cooked, sprinkle lot of coriander leaves, I just love coriander so I use lot of it.

Enjoy as it is or with kadhi or gravy vegetable dish.

Ingredients for Kadhi

3 Tbsp of Yogurt
1 tbsp of Chickpea flour
Salt as per taste
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 Green Onion chopped
1 Sliced green chili
1/2 tbsp Red Chili powder
Few curry leaves
1 tbsp Oil or Ghee
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 Tbsp Turmeric powder
Lots of coriander leaves - chopped

Method :

Beat yogurt and flour and mix it nicely.

Add cup of water in it and mix it again.

Heat a pan , with ghee or oil in it.

Add cumin seeds and curry leaves in it

When seeds change the color , Add green onion and sliced green chili in it.
Cook for minute or two and  add flour and yogurt mixture and mix it.

Now add salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder , ginger garlic paste and mix it and let it come for boil, after one boil , put the gas on low and let it boil , till you get you desired consistency.

When its done, add coriander leaves and enjoy.
