-- Mag ni Dal ni Khichdi

Mag ni Dal ni Khichdi - (Yellow Gram Rice)

Serves: 4 
Cooking time (approx.): 42 minutes
Style: Indian Vegetarian (Gujarati)

1  cup(s) split yellow gram (yellow moong dal)
1  cup(s) rice
1  teaspoon(s) cumin seeds
  teaspoon(s) each of asafoetida and turmeric powder
1"piece ginger finely chopped
1"stick cinnamon
2  green chilli(es) chopped
8  whole black peppercorns
2  tablespoon(s) ghee (clarified butter)
5  cups water
salt to taste

  1. Wash and soak the split yellow gram and rice together for 15  minutes. Drain. Heat the water in a vessel till very hot. Keep aside.
  2. Heat the ghee (clarified butter) in a large heavy bottomed vessel till it is very hot. Add the cumin seeds and let them splutter. Now add the chopped ginger, green chilli(es), cinnamon, peppercorns, asafoetida and turmeric powder. Stir fry on medium / low level for about 2  minute(s).
  3. Now, add the split yellow gram, rice and salt. Mix well. Add the hot water to this and bring to a boil. Cover and keep on low heat for 25  minutes or till the mixture is slightly mushy.

    NOTE: Khichdi is traditionally cooked in a pressure cooker which is much faster. If you happen to have one, in the last step after adding all the ingredients, cover and bring to maximum pressure on high heat. Pressure cook on high heat for 4  whistles. Put off the flame and set aside till all the steam escapes.

Serve hot immediately topped with lots of ghee (clarified butter) and accompanied by Gram Flour Gravy (Gujarati Kadhi)
