Masala Khichdi is a spicy variation of simple khichdi. Thid is healthy but ultimate comfort food. Khichdi is basically prepared with rice and lentil. Every household has their own recipe for khichdi. At my home Khichdi was made jyst with rice and moong dal. Adding a few vegetables with spicy tomato seasoning makes khichdi a complete meal. Usually khichdi is served with yogurt, puckle and egg fry.
