Gujarati Kichadi With Kadhi

( Click image for enlarged view )

Gujarati cuisine is termed as "the haute cuisine of vegetarianism". I love gujarati cuisine but never prepared at home so I wanted to start with a very simple n delicious combo. I choose gujarathi kichadi and kadhi.

Gujarati kichadi is rice & lentil cooked in a porridge style and kadhi is a yogurt based soup that goes well with it ..It had a soothing unique flavor n also a complete meal by itself.

Gujarati Kichadi

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 cup mung dal
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp chopped ginger
  • pinch of hing
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 tsp whole black pepper
  • 2 green chilli
  • 2 tbsp clarified butter
  • 6 cups water
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure:

Soak rice n dal together for 15 min. Boil the six cups water in a deep bottom pan.

Heat ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds,cinnamon stick n black pepper fry for a min then add hing, chopped green chilli, ginger fry for 30 sec. Add soaked rice n dal stir for 1 min.

Now shift all the above mixture to the boiling water,add salt n turmeric powder n cook on a medium flame, stir occasionally till the rice is cooked.
