Wednesday, March 4, 2009


I call this as food for a child or food for a sick person,because it is quite mild to taste and also a person who has lost the taste after having a fever would like to have this nutritious yet delicious rice which is also soft(they also call it khichdi in south India)

It is quite easy and fast to cook,just follow the steps as below:

  • take 2 cups of rice soaked in water for 30 min.
  • 1/2 a cup of moong dal(split green lentils).
  • 1 medium sized onion,chopped finely.
  • ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp(1:1)ratio.
  • 2 green chillies.
  • 1/2 a bunch of cilantro and mint leaves.
  • turmeric powder 1/4 tsp.
  • olive oil 1 tablespoonful.
  • Salt to taste.

  1. Heat a pot on the stove and add the oil into it.
  2. when oil is hot add the split lentils and fry until golden brown( do not char them)
  3. then add chopped onions into it and fry until golden yellow.
  4. then add the green chillies,mint and cilantro leaves.
  5. next add ginger and garlic paste and fry a little.
  6. add salt to taste .
  7. Next add 6 cups of water(since this rice should be very soft)
  8. Let the mixture cook and when only a little water is left cover the vessel and cook it in low flame for about 7-8 min.
mmmm Our rice tastes and smells good at the same time.
You can enjoy it with mint sauce(pudina chutney).
I shall share my recipe of mint chutney ot sauce with you in my next blog.
Until then have a happy eating and stay healthy may God help you all.
