Vaghareli Khichri | Parsi Khichri

>>  Wednesday, May 20, 2015

For the final day of cooking under Parsi Cuisine, I am sharing their style of making Khichri. I had made all these dishes for lunch and was planning on sharing together. However I ended up sharing it separately. This was our vegetarian lunch and Hubby dear loved the Khichri. 

Though the method sort of looked similar, its different as there is a mix use of spices with dal. The cooking style that I mostly follow tends towards using spices with dried legumes or certain tubers etc and all these dals are mostly cooked different. So it was very different to use so much spices along with daals.

On the whole this rice turns out to be a good choice if you are looking for a good one pot meal.
