Inspired by heart-warming Rajasthani Cuisine, Gehun ki Bikaneri Khichdi is a whole wheat khichdi that is sumptuous and tasty enough to make a complete meal. Replacing rice with whole wheat enhances the fibre and iron content of this recipe, while the use of equal amounts of ghee and oil gives it a traditional touch while reducing the amount of fat. If you wish you can avoid the ghee completely and use 2 tsp of oil in this recipe, especially if you have high cholesterol.
