Split Masoor Khichdi Recipe
100 gms. washed basmati rice
50gms. washed and drained split Masoor dal.
3 cups water
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. turmeric
A pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp. ghee/oil
Salt to taste
Coriander to garnish
- Heat up the ghee/oil in a saucepan and lightly fry the cumin seeds.
- Put in the rice and dal, salt and turmeric and stir for a bit.
- Add the water. A tip here is that the water should be twice the quantity of the dal and the rice.
- Cover and cook on simmer until all the water evaporates. It is best not to cover the saucepan completely, leave a small section of it open so that the boiling water does not spill over.
Serve hot with yoghurt.
