Easy to make Healthy Low Oil Mix Dal Khichdi Recipe

Khichdi also known as Khichadi is a famous dish enjoyed by people in the Indian Sub-Continent.

It is a cuisine in itself. There are so many variants to this simple one pot dish that if I start eating one type today, I wont exhaust the many varieties of Khichdi until years go by!

Usually a mix of lentils and rice but sometimes made using Oats, Sabudana, Bajra and other grains, Khichdi is a complete meal. It is not only very tasty but so easy to make. Rich in protein and fibre, it is also a great way to lose weight in a healthy manner.

Ideal for people of all ages, Khichdi is one of the first solid foods children in India eat. So you can guess the nutritiousness of this dish because parents want the best for their babies. You know! :)

Today's variation of Khichdi uses a mixture of multiple lentils (dal), rice, a few vegetables and minimum oil.
