Khichdi is a dish that speaks volumes about the wealth of nutrition that has been passed down through generations of India. The combination of rice and lentils has already been pegged as one that is sustainable as well as healthy. A study published in The Lancet in January 2019 said that consuming lentils with a side of rice for lunch was a way to reduce your dietary carbon footprint. Indians have been consuming dal-rice as a comfort meal since ages and khichdi brings the two foods together in a beautiful way. The dish is easy-to-make and oh-so-satisfying and can be consumed by people of all ages. In fact, khichdi is the one desi meal we go to, in sickness and in health. Don’t we all remember the warm comfort of chowing down on a bowl of hot khichdi while we’re down with flu?

It’s easy on the stomach and is said to give your digestive system a break, particularly when you’re recovering from a bout of food poisoning. However, khichdi is prepared in several different ways with every region of the country putting its own quirk or signature on the dish. As such, there are a number of different ways of preparing this dish and it can be prepared from a variety of different grains – from oats to brown rice and even the beloved sabudana or tapioca pearls and even bulgur or daliya. A lot of people nowadays prefer preparing khichdi from whole grains instead of using white rice, as that helps them load up on more fibre and essential nutrients. Whichever way you choose to prepare it, the comfort and taste of khichdi is unmatched.
