Moong Dal Khichadi

Moong dal khichdi is very popular as a comfort food. It is a best option when you are sick, especially if you are down with a fever or stomach ache. When you are in haste or tired. Because it is a light, healthy, easy and quick recipe. This is a good combination of a cereal and a pulse which is suitable for your baby, so it is ideal baby food.

Spilt green gram (Moong dal)- ¼ cup
Any type of rice- - ½ cup
Cumin seeds- ½ tsp 
Asafetida Powder (Hing)- ¼ tsp 
Black peppercorns- 2 to 4 (optional)
Turmeric Powder- ½ tsp
Clarrified butter (Desi Ghee)- 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Water- 3 to 4 cups (I used here 3 cups water, depends upon how much soft and thin you want)

Wash properly and soak the dal, rice in 3 cups of water together.
Heat a pressure cooker, add ghee, cumin seeds and peppercorns and saute for few seconds. Add hing, turmeric, dal and rice with water and salt.
Pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles. When it is done, remove the peppercorn. Just whisk gently.  Serve hot with lime and lots of ghee ;) .

Method 2:
If you don't want that much soft, then add only 1 ½ cups water. Do not whisk. Serve hot with ghee, papad and pickle or kadhi.
