Rain is romantic. We know many poets who had expressed their feelings for love by their words related to rain. But, for me, rainy day is all about stay at home and enjoy a lavish khichdi in lunch.

Everyone in India knows about this famous tasty food. But, I have received many emails from my foreigner friends, requesting the recipe of khichdi. So, I decided to write this simple and interesting Indian food.

Ingredients:

1) Rice (500 gm)

2) Moong dal (250 gm)

3)Masoor dal (250 gm)

4) One onion (chopped)

5) 2 Dry red chillies

6) Salt as per your taste

7) Sugar half tablespoon (optional)

8) Two bay leaves

9) 2 Tablespoon ginger paste

10) Turmeric powder

11) Garam Masala

12) Ghee

13) Mustard oil

Step 1:

First of all you have to fry moong dal in a pan without oil. Then, turn off the flame and mix masoor dal with it, add some water and keep it aside.

Step 2:

Heat oil in a kadai, add bay leaves, dry red chillies, and chopped onion. Cook them for a minute and add moong and masoor dal (which you kept aside). Now, add ginger paste and mix them nicely in low flame. Add rice, turmeric, salt ,sugar and cook it for 3 minutes. Now, add some water and green chillies and then cover it for some times.

Once you feel that rice and dal have been boiled properly, turn off the flame. Add garam masala and ghee stir it and cover it for 15 minutes before serve.

You can serve this kichudi with potato fries, pickles and pointed gourd fries.
