Quinoa & Dal Khichdi

Usually i used to prepare whenever i feel like having khichdi with rice and dal, coz this dish is one of my comforting foods and also its a one pot meal to prepare quickly and quite really easy to prepare, this time i prepared my comforting food as healthy version, instead of using rice i used quinoa to make out this dal khichdi, needless to say this khichdi with quinoa and  dals tastes awesome and really filling.

Nutritious,healthy and comforting food can enjoy without any guilt and we enjoyed this quinoa and dal khichdi with mango pickles,both together works out wonder, u can also have them simply without any side dishes too.


1cup Quinoa
1/4cup Toor dal
1/4cup Masoor dal
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1no Onion (chopped)
7nosCurry leaves
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
2nos Bay leaves
2nos Dry red chillies
5nos Garlic cloves(crushed)
1tsp Ginger (chopped finely)
Salt
Oil+ghee

Combine the quinoa, toordal and masoor dal,finely chopped ginger, salt in a vessel, add 4cups of water and pressure cook them for 5hisses (i love my dal khichidi bit mushy, if u dont want so, u can reduce the cooking time).

Heat the enough oil with ghee or simply oil and crack the cumin seeds,dry red chillies, bay leaves,curryleaves and saute the chopped onions and crushed garlic cloves until the onions turns transculent.

Once the pressure get released take the cooked quinoa-dal mixture and add this mixture to the cooking veggies, stir for few minutes and put off the stove..

Serve hot!!!
