Mixed vegetable Khichdi

Khichdi in hindi means hotchpotch, which is like a stew with lot of ingredients cooked in one big pot. There are many variations to the Indian khichdi. Here is our take on this wholesome meal with rice, lentils and vegetables that is perfect for the whole family. Also this is a great choice for babies about 8 months and older because it's mushy and easy to digest. 

Prep Time: 20 mins

Ingredients:
Rice (basmati/sona masoori): 1 cup 
Moong Daal: 1/3 cup 
Mixed vegetables of your choice: 1/3 cup
( Carrot/Cauliflower/Peas )
Onions (chopped): 3 tablespoons
Ginger (chopped): 1 teaspoon
Garlic (chopped): 1 teaspoon
Jeera: 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder: 1/2 teaspoon
Green chillies (optional): 1-2

Ghee: 2-3 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Water: 2 1/2 cups


Heat some oil/ghee in a pressure cooker. Add the jeera, ginger, garlic, onions and saute. Add turmeric, salt, chopped vegetables and saute again for 2-3 mins. Add the moong dal and rice and stir for another minute before adding the water. Adjust the salt. Pressure cook for 2 whistles. 


For babies you can over cook for about 3-4 whistles and mush it up with a spoon. Serve hot with ghee or even mix it up with yogurt.
