If you do not want to spend ages in the kitchen to make dessert? Need a simple but elegant dessert for dinner party?Try Poached pears with ice cream, whipped cream or even with a cake.
This has been one of the current favourites with my hubby and daughter. Every time I am hard pressed for time and I offer to make this, I find them nodding and smiling in anticipation. Both of them are not picky eaters, they eat almost everything I prepare, and don’t complain!!!!!I know what u all must be thinking, Lucky gal!!Well, that’s true. But when it come to this khichadi, they always do justice to the dish….by finishing it!!!So here goes the recipe…
1/2 cup rice, washed and drained
1/2 cup moong dal, washed and drained
1 big tomato
7-8 flakes of garlic, chopped fine
2 green chilles, chopped fine
2 tbsp ghee
Mustard seeds, jeera, hing, turmeric powder for tadka
Coriander leaves, chopped fine
Salt for taste
Combine the washed and drained rice and dal together and add the chopped tomato, a pinch of turmeric, hing and jeera and some salt and pressure cook. Note that you need to add some more water than the usual to this khichadi so that it gets a running consistency, after being cooked. Once the khichadi is done, it is time for the tadka.
