    For the jowar and moong dal khichdi
  1. To make jowar moong dal khichdi reicpe | healthy jowar khichdi | jowar moong khichdi | jowar khichdi for diabetes | sorghum khichdi, we need 1/2 cup jowar (white millet)Jowar is rich in Potassium. Potassium is critical for those with High Blood Pressure as it lessens the impact of sodium. Eating more Potassium Rich Foods will remove more sodium from your body through urine. 
  2. With that we need 1/2 cup yellow moong dal (split yellow gram)
  3. Clean, wash and soak the jowar in enough water in a deep bowl overnight or at least for 10 hours.
  4. Next day, drain it using a strainer and discard the water.
  5. Also clean and wash the yellow moong dal and drain it using a strainer and discard the water. The fibre (4.1 g in ¼ cup) present in yellow moong dal prevents the deposition of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the arteries which promotes a healthy heart in turn. Packed with nutrients like zinc (1.4 mg), protein (12.2 mg) and iron (1.95 mg), yellow moong dal helps to maintain the elasticity of your skin and help to keep it moist.  Fiberpotassium and magnesium from yellow moong dal will work together to regulate blood pressure and soothe the nerves and is diabetic friendly. See here for details of 7 amazing benefits of yellow moong dal
  6. Combine the jowar and moong dal in a pressure cooker. 
  7. Add salt to taste.
  8. Add 2½ cups of water to cook jowar moong khichdi.
  9. Mix well using a spoon. 
  10. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and pressure cook for 7 whistles. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside.
  11. For the tempering of healthy jowar khichdi, heat 2 tsp ghee in a small non-stick pan. Other than calories and fats, the only nutrients that ghee is rich in are the vitamins – all of which are fat-soluble. All the 3 vitamins (Vitamin AVitamin E and Vitamin K) are antioxidants which have a role in removing free radicals from the body and protecting our cell as well as help in maintaining skin health and glow. Yes, ghee does contain cholesterol, but some amount of cholesterol is needed by the body. Ghee is loaded with fats but that’s medium chain fatty acids (MCT) which aid in weight loss. Ghee is healthy for daibetics in small amounts. Learn to easily make your ghee at home which is free of preservatives. See benefits of ghee
  12. Add 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera). The most common benefit of jeera known to many is to soothe the stomach, intestine and the entire digestive tract. Cumin seeds are apparently a very good source of iron. A tbsp. of cumin seeds can fulfil nearly 20% of days iron requirement. Even small quantity of cumin seeds has huge amounts of calcium ( see calcium rich Indian foods ) – a bone supporting mineral. They aid is digestion, weight loss and help reduce inflammation. See detailed benefits of cumin seeds, jeera
  13. When the seeds crackle, add a pinch of asafoetida (hing). The active compound 'coumarin' helps in managing blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Asafoetida is known to have anti-bacterial properties, which helps to keep asthma at bay. Asafoetida is an age-old remedy for bloating and other stomach problems like flatulence. The best solution is to gulp down little hing with water or dissolve it in water and sip it. It can also be used along with curd or almond oil as a hair mask. It helps to prevent dryness of hair and smoothen as well as strengthen hair.
  14. Add 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi). Turmeric helps in digestion of food thus helping to overcome indigestion. Haldi may help in reducing the growth of fat cells in the body. Turmeric, being rich in iron, is highly valuable in the treatment of anaemia and both the root as well as the powder should be a regular part of an anaemic diet. One of the health benefits of turmeric is it’s anti-inflammatory property due to the active compound, Curcumin, which helps to relieve inflammation of the joints and thus is a ladder to relieve pain related to arthritis. The curcumin in haldi also helps to ward of the bacteria’s causing cold, cough and throat irritation. See here for detailed turmeric benefits
