Patri Khichreen/Sindhi Style Khichdi

I have tried couple of dishes from Sindhi cuisine, somehow i feel very comfortable to make dishes from this cuisine eventhough this cuisine was quite unknown for me before entering into this virtual world. Thanks to this bloggy world,been born and brought up in South India, many North Indian dishes are quite unfamiliar even today for me.I learned, still learning and will learn many dishes and cuisines from this tremendous blogger world. You may wonder why suddenly Sindhi style khichdi, coz am running a week of blogging marathon from today and my theme for this week is Sindhi cuisine.

For the first day of this week's blogging marathon, i prepared a Sindhi style khichdi which i picked from Alka's Sindhi Rasoi.This khichdi goes as usual rice and lentils combination but this Sindhi style khichdi will be bit watery and mushy when compared to the other cuisine's khichdi.Simple dish prepared quickly with few ingredients, this khichdi tastes wonderful when served with a dash of ghee and with some pickle. Patri Khichreen is a light meal to relish without any guilt and definitely delicious as well as healthy.I served patri khichreen with grated mango pickle and sindhi aloo.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing this 28th edition.


1+1/2cups Rice
1/2cup Husked green gram
Salt
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
7nos Peppercorns
2nos Green cardamoms
1tbsp Oil
5cups Water

Take the rice and husked green gram together in a vessel, wash well and soak for 15minutes, drain and keep aside.

In a pressure cooker, heat the oil, add the peppercorns,green cardamoms,rice -dal mixture, saute for few minutes.

Add the water,salt,turmeric powder,close the cooker with lid and cook for 5-6whistles.

Once steam released, mash the khichdi, the consistency of this khichdi will be liquid.

Serve it immediately with a dash of ghee with papads,pickles or with spicy potatoes.
