Chilkewali Moong Dal Ki khichdi- Rice Porridge

Chilkewali Moong Dal Ki Khichdi is a soft food often given to a person who is not well or babies and even senior citizens. I like to eat this soothing food sometimes when a light meal is the requirement not only when I am sick.

I like to add vegetables to my khichdi to make it more tasty and nutritious. You can serve khichdi with papad, fried chilly, achar and yogurt.
