A traditional khichdi made easier using the microwave and tastier by adding crunchy veggies. A basket of assorted veggies adds a riot of colours and flavours to the khichdi while a selection of spices and everyday ingredients like ginger and green chillies used in the right proportions impart immense flavour to it. Serve the Fada ni Khichadi hot with a bowlful of fresh curds. Try to serve it immediately on cooking, as reheating might dry it a little.

I love microwave recipes.. They are so easy to make.. Even my daughter can make it.. so she loves it more.. It is little spicy and masaledar.. The veggies makes it more crunchy which makes it even more tasty.. When served with curds.. you can have this delightful recipe at ease..
