I am surprised that even a normal khichdi can be a good source of iron. The khichdi tastes good and the assortment of vegetables makes this khichdi a complete meal.

A novel way of making a wholesome khichdi! Loved how its nutritious and so tasty at the same time. Great for people who are ill as well, if you reduce the spices..
