Instructions
  1. Wash dal and rice together in running water. Drain water an keep washing till clear water appears.
  2. Drain water and transfer rice and dal mix in a pressure cooker.
  3. Add 1.5 cups of water. Insert your index finger and the water level from the rice and dal mix surface should be around 1 inch.
  4. Add turmeric powder, salt, slit green chilies, sliced ginger, bay leaves , black peper, cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon and mace. Give a quick stir with a spoon and close the lid.
  5. Pressure cook till 2-3 whistles and turn off the gas and wait for the steam to release.
  6. Once the steam is released completely, open the lid and add 1/2 cup of water or more and mix the khichdi. Break lumps if seen.
  7. You can adjust water as per your required consistency of the khichdi. I like my khichdi semi liquid hence i added 1 cup of water.
  8. Put the cooker on gas again and let the khichdi boil again. Keep the lid open and meanwhile prepare the temper.
  9. Heat ghee in a pan and add cumin and allow it to splutter.
  10. Now add dry red chilies and sliced onions and saute till the onions turn light brown.
  11. Remove the khichdi from the flames and transfer it to a serving bowl.
  12. Add the tempering on it and serve hot with more ghee (if required), raita, pickle, papad etc.
