Boiled Rice and Mung Dal Khichidi:Boiled Rice and Mung Dal Khichidi:
Wholesome meal.Khichdi is a balance of carbohydrate and protein. Moong beans additionally are a good source of dietary fibre.
I have prepared this Khichidi using Red Matta rice.This can be substituted with red rice or even normal parboiled rice.
Loved the texture and mild flavours. Yummy comfort food.
