This khichdi recipe is super healthy and oil free recipe, even I don’t use onion, garlic or anything. It can be served with pickle, chutney or curd.
Khichdi is native to India and most commonly consumed in Gujarat and Rajasthan with Buttermilk or Curd. This dish is considered to be the best when it comes to recovery from diseases.
Try some khichdi also for healthy meal. It is traditional north Indian style of khichdi. You can choose any lentil with rice such as yellow moong dal, chana dal, green moong dal or even broken wheat or daliya also.
