Toor Dal Khichdi
However,it is very hard to impress the little one,but still she is a happy face for rice.If I would ever ask her what do you want to eat,she would say only these two words that she recently learned-ricce and ooti,means rice and roti .This toor dal khichdi is for such lazy days and believe me it does taste awesome.I like my khichdi with a dollop of desi ghee and I am satisfied.
