    Mixed Dal Kichdi

    Once when I was busy doing window shopping at reliance fresh, just saw a small packet with all dals mixed together , bought it out of excitement, but later on chased by my hubby to just use it and make something tasty out of it... Have a look of the output below ;)

    Of course !!!!! It worked out too good.

    My version of mixed dal kichdi ...
    Ingredients :
    1/2 bowl long grain Rice
    1/3 green moong dal
    1/3 yellow Moong Dal
    1/3 massor dal

    1 Small onion chopped
    Paste of 2 green chillies & 1" ginger piece ( Paste is optional.Instead use chilli and ginger cut into small pieces )
    1 Tbls Oil
    1tsp cumin seeds
    1/4 tsp Turmeric
    1 1/2 tsp salt
    pepper/miriyaalu 3- 4

    Oil- 1 tblspn
    urad dal
    kadipattha/ karivepaaku

    Method :
    1. First fry the dals in a spoon of oil for 3 to 4 mins and turn it off.    
    1.Now ,Wash and Soak the rice and Dals seperately. Leave for 10min.
    2.In a cooker, heat the one spoon of oil and add cumin seeds
    3.Add the chopped onion and chiili and ginger paste. Stir and saute for 1min.
    4.Add the rice ,pepper and moong Dal.
    5.Add the salt and turmeric
    6.Make sure not to put too much water .The water should just covers the rice and Dals.
    7.turn on the cooker
    8.It jus takes the time normal rice would take.
    9. Just check accordingly and tun off the cooker and check, pls add some water if necessary

    Once the Rice is done, put a small kadai on stove , add oil and let it heat.
    Roast kaju till they are roasted well and take them out.
    Now in the same kadai add all the ingredients under tempering.Fry nicely until a wonderful aroma hits ur kitchen.Add this to the cooked kichdi and
    My god !!! You cant resist it.

    Serve it with  Raita

    Variation: I can suggest you a masala powder which can be made in your kitchen and added to the above recipie at step 4 with the other ingredients
    If you have time and wanted a nice and different taste,
    Dry roast 5 cloves + 2 elaichi + 1 dalchin ( half inch )+ few jeera and grind them to a fine powder. It smells awesomee and tastes fantastic when added to the kichdi.
