This is another amazing Khichdi I eat often.
Easy to prepare and very very tasty.
It was a girl who taught me how. Long time ago. ummmm...
A brahmin girl, and you see in my place, Brahmins are suppose to be good cooks.
Well, they are professional cooks, you know like the Maharaj,
And I like the way They cook Khichdi during the Rath Yatra.
So I asked this girl, and yes she was pretty, if she knew how to cook Khichdi.
I was only trying to pull her leg.
She wasn't the kind who looked like she could cook.
She was a Cool Kinda girl, and so I was surprised when she told me how it is prepared.
She taught me a lot of things...
OK, this is one hell of an easy recipe.
Try it sometime.
Pressure cook 1 cup toor daal with 1 cup rice in 2 cups of water
( Water should be to your comfort level., whether you want it dry or slightly gravyish ).
Also add green peas, a pinch of turmeric and salt.
After about 4 whistles, let it cool.
In a separate pan, heat a dollop of desi ghee ( you will have to use oil if Ghee ain't available)
Fry some peanuts in low heat till peanuts get cooked and crispy.
Remove peanuts and keep separate.
Add 1 tsp jeera into remaining ghee and let splutter.
Add onions ( 1 onion cut into slivers) and fry till brown.
Add ginger paste and fry for sometime.
(The green slivers you see is a Herb, Chinese Chives which you add along with the onion if you can get it from some supermarket. This adds a very nice flavor).
Now add the whole thing from the pan into the Khichdi and mix well, also add the peanuts.
