The handi has a wonderful way of condensing evaporated water and pushing it back into the vessel, making it possible to cook with very little water, and minimizing nutrient loss. What is more, this handy utensil also retains the aromas and flavours of spices to the fullest. Here is a traditional Handi Khichdi, made with rice and loads of veggies. You will love it so much that you will want to repeat this authentic recipe as often as possible!
