Gujarati Kadhi Khichdi

Coming to next recipe of Blogging Marathon 56 for day 3rd, I choose Gujarati Khadi and Khichdi under combo theme. Gujarati Kadhi Khichdi is perfect meal for dinner or lunch. This recipe is simple and healthy meal which you can prepared with few ingredients which are easily available at home.

In this recipe kadhi is little mild compare to Punjabi kadhi and taste is little sweet and color is white compare to regular yellow Punjabi Kadhi. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and savory taste.

Mostly steam rice or jeera rice is served with Punjabi kadhi but in Gujarat, kadhi is served with khichdi. In this khichdi recipe, I used arhar dal and rice with tempering ingredients. I always prefer to use desi ghee in my recipes which really enhance the taste and aroma of recipe. It’s really healthy and nutritious meal which you can serve anytime with sabzi and phulkas.
