The Aftermath of the Pain

This was what I had for lunch day 2. dayone, I only ate icecreams, about half a Kilo. This is my Khichdi for the sick ver 1.0

This was what I had for dinner day 2. The morning ver 1.0 was not too liquid and wasn't so easy on the area where my tooth had been. So I added more water, and more ghee so it just slips into my throat lol. This was Khichdi Ver 2.0

Day 3, I got more adventurous, so I added a lot of stuff and it tasted amazing. I had the same thing, cooked the same way for dinner. Forgot to take pictures, though I added cauliflowers in that. This was Khichdi ver 3.0

I tarkad all three versions in Desi Ghee, and this was no sick food. I could have it even when I am hale and hearty. I am gonna cook this often... Serendipity is also a mother of good recipes..

The cooking was quite simple. And the taste was amazing.. all those who have no pain too, do try this out for a change.. The taste quite surprised me... Specially Khichdi ver 3.0....

For the the recipes, the main ingrediant was the same.

3 parts Toor Daal and 1 part Basmati rice ( Tukda/broken).

Two Tomatoes, one potato.

For the version 3.o, I added carrots and then garnished with Corianders.

I washed and added the daal, rice, tomatoes, potatoes and carrots(for the third one) and half an onion(chopped, the other half for tadka) in a cooker, added water to make it thin ( Amount water should be based on your comfort level). I let it cook for about 5 whistles so that everything is real soft.... I let it cool

For the tadka, I used Desi Ghee. I was liberal in the use of ghee.
WHen Ghee is hot in a Kadhai, I added the remaining onions (choppd fine) and fried till golden brown. I added 1 tsp of ginger-garlic and saute for about 30 seconds and then poured the contents of the pressure cooker into the kadhai....

I cooled it, coz I couldn't have hot stuff, and I just enjoyed it...
