KHANDESHI KHICHDI TEL

KHANDESHI KHICHDI TEL




This is a Maharashrian dish, a khichdi made with rice and moong dal. If you want you can add potatoes otherwise the flavourful tadka of dry chillies, hing and other ingredients is sufficient to satiate your palate. One awesome recipe, definitely for keeps. 

Step 1
Take equal quantities of rice and moong dal . Add haldi ,salt, jeera and hing . 4 to 5 cups of water depending on the kind of consistency you prefer .
Let this cook in pressure or a deep bottomed pan.

Step 2.

Heat around half to three-fourth  cup of oil . Temper with mustard , jeera ,sliced garlic , lots of dry chillies , chilly powder,  one finely chopped  small onion, hing , haldi and salt. You can add finely chopped potatoes at this stage. No sugar please . Now cover with lid and let cook .

Once cooked pour this over the khichdi and enjoy accompanied by a glass of chilled buttermilk.

"Khandesh is a region in Maharashtra which has a very hot climate where the folks of that region love to eat spicy food, high on pungency .
So basically this is a khichdi which is cooked without any spice but eaten with a super spicy oil  .. "
