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.
