Split Moong dal Khichdi / Chilkewali Moong dal Ki Khichdi

Split Green Moong Dal khichdi or chilkewali moong dal ki khichdi as known in Hindi, is a healthy and a comforting khichdi. It's also easy to prepare. In the cold winters, a hot pot of this khichdi along with kadhi and papad tastes just awesome. 

Rice 1 cup
Split Green Moong Dal 1/2 cup
Dry Red Chili 1
Salt as per taste
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds 1 tbsp
Asafoetida 1 tsp
Ghee 1 to 2 tbsp
Water 2.5 to 3 cups

Wash rice and split green moong dal under running water and keep ready aside.

In a pressure cooker heat ghee. Once ghee heats up, add cumin seeds, asafoetida and dry red chili. Once cumin crackles, add rice and split green moong dal and saute for a minute.

Now add turmeric powder and salt and mix well. 

Now add water and allow to boil for a minute. 

Close the cooker and cook for 5 whistles.

Once the pressure releases, open and transfer to a plate.

Serve with papad and top with a dollop spoon of ghee and enjoy....
