To many, the phrase comfort food is synonymous with Khichdi, a nourishing and homely food that never fails to satiate.

In this recipe, we have combined high fibre oats with yellow moong dal to make a Nourishing Khichdi with a difference. Veggies add a welcome crunch to this recipe, while also bringing in their share of fibre and antioxidants.

Perfectly spiced with just a mild touch of salt, this dish makes a healthy treat when served with a bowl of low-fat curds.

A recipe using oats and veggies, so loads of fiber... A perfect recipe for those with heart problems and high BP... The spices balance the flavour very well, though the salt is used in limited quantity.
