Khichdi with a twist

Khichdi is our country’s most favourite comfort food; it brings forth memories of family meals made with love. The popularity of khichdi all across the country lies in its simplicity, taste and its versatility. Though khichdi is traditionally made with rice and lentils, you can replace the rice with millets for a healthier dish.
