I learned this recipe from my neighbour. Kichidi is the Maharastrian recipe. This is a mixture of different varieties of vegetables and some pulses. I liked it and I hope all my friends will also like it.

We need to have rice and green gram and some vegetables. This preparation is meant for 5 people.


Rice-2 cups
Green gram-3/4 cup
Carrot-1 big
Peas-50 grms
Cloves-3 or 4
Dalchini-small piece
Bay leaf-1 or 2
Green chillies-2 
Salt-to taste
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Red chilli powder-1tsp


This recipe needs some preparation. 
Wash rice and green gram and drain excess water. Keep it aside.
Chop onions.
Cut carrot into blocks.
Chop beans.
Cut potato into blocks.
Slit the green chillies.


Take a thick bottomed pressure pan. Heat oil in the pan add shaajeera, dalchini and cloves. When they start popping up add bay leaf. Add onions and green chillies. Fry them for about 2 minutes, then add all the vegetables and fry for 2 minutes. 

Let them turn soft and add 5 cups of water. Add salt and turmeric powder and allow it to boil. 

Once water started boiling, add soaked rice and green gram. Mix well. Cover the pressure cooker and cook for three or four whistles. 
Once the cooker cool, open it and mix well. Yummy, hot, spicy kichidi is ready. Serve hot with curd.
