Whole Moong Khichdi

Khichdi,whole moong,moong khichdi

This is definitely comfort food for me. Back in the days when I was living with my friends, I used to make this at least twice every week. Instead of having to cook rice, dal and some vegetables which took a lot of time, I would prefer making this easy khichdi. Just one dish which has carbs and proteins and is a complete meal. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!!

What you will need:
Whole moong (Green gram) - 1/3 cup
Rice - 1/3 cup
Toor Dal (Yellow Lentils) - 1/3 cup
Green chillies - 3, slit
Onion - 1 small
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - optional
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste

How to prepare
Soak whole moong for 4 to 5 hours. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the cumin seeds. If adding curry leaves, add them now. Add the turmeric powder and chopped onions. Fry the onions until they are transparent. Now add 2 and a half cups of water. Add the green chillies to the boiling water. Add the moong, rice and toor dal. Cook everything together. After it is done, add salt and mix. Serve hot. You could sprinkle some lime juice before serving.
