I became a fan of this recipe at once when I had this in College canteen.Its favourite among the students.We make khichdi at home which is made by cooking rice in dal but this seemed different.The dish is not very dry and does not need any accompaniment and its a filler and full of health.So check out this vegetarian recipe which is one of my favourites and give me your valuable feedbacks.
