Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp Basmati rice
  • 3 Tbsp Moong dal (lentils)
  • 1 Tbsp quinoa
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 3 heaping tsp Khichdi masala (or more to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp canola or olive oil
  • Cilantro, chopped – garnish
  • Optional: onion, garlic, ginger (to taste – I’d use a couple cloves of garlic, 1-2 tsp grated ginger and 1/4 onion for this amount)
  • Note: if you want to make your own Khichdi Masala from scratch – here are the proportions/ingredients:
  • 1 Tbsp turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp fennel
  • 1 Tbsp mustard seed
  • 1 Tbsp coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • Optional: Serve with 0% unsweetened Greek Yogurt
  • The Directions
  • Step 1: Wash the mixture of rice, moong dal (lentils) and quinoa until all the sediment is gone and the water runs clear.
  • Step 3: Bring everything to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Let it cook for 20-30 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.
  • Step 4: Garnish with cilantro, serve with yogurt if you like!
  • Any way you make it, it won’t disappoint you, and is super easy to make for any first-time cooks out there!
