Genhu Khichdi / wheat grains khichdi

Genhu Khichdi / wheat grains khichdi

This is also going to cooking with seeds event on Suma's blog.  (Check this link) Also check Priya's blog here


1/2 cup wheat grains soaked overnight and pressure cooked for one whistle
1/2 cup rice
1/2 cup dal

clean the rice and dal, wash and keep along with cooked wheat grains.

Some veggies, i used-
1/2 cup carrots
1/2 cup capsicum
1 onion
1 tsp each of turmeric and coriander powder
salt to taste
1 tsp ghee- optional
1 cup water
oil for cooking
cumin for tempering

Heat oil for the veggies. add onions, cook and then add the veggies. Fry a bit. Add turmeric and coriander powder and fry some more. Now add the grains all together.

Add water, salt and pressure cook for one whistle, simmer for 2 mins. let the pressure cool. Add the ghee for a good aroma, savor hot.

I made shortcut rajma with this, was not sure of the combo, but we thoroughly enjoyed it! I think anything masaledaar would definitely go with this nutritious khichdi!
