Dhuli Moong Dal Kchichdi

Moong dal Khichdi or dhuli moong wali dal ki khichdi is one of the comforting and easy mixed rice and dal dishes that I love to make on lazy days.Khichdi is made with different dals like moong chilka ,toor dal or chana dal and of all I love this one most .

This dish has both carbohydrates from rice and protein from dal and it makes a complete and filling meal.It tastes best with papad,pickle,yogurt and chutney.As they say “Khichdi ke chaar yaar -dahi,papad,chutney,achaar”.The dish has been lying in my draft for ages and finally I posted it for the theme rice dishes.

    This is such a comfort food. I make this once in a while when I am alone for lunch and not in a mood to make anything elaborate for myself.
