Restaurant Style Dal khichdi


I prepared dal khichdi in restaurant style generally everyone use moong dal for kichidi but here iam using toor dal instead of moong dal. It is very easy to prepare and takes very less time to cook also. It is the right choice for lunch box recipe kids also like this recipe a lot.

It is very nutritious for everyone mainly for children because we are using toordal along with rice are main ingredients, as we all of us know how lentils are nutritious to our health. Lentils are mainly help to kids for their growth and we all know rice is rich in carbohydrates. Here iam using onions, tomatoes and some spice powders for getting taste.

When i tried this recipe by using moong dal and lot of veggies but it didn’t gey good taste i felt some normal regular flavour so later i search a lot of things about this recipe now i try this khichdi in my house. After having this recipe everyone praises me a lot and feel so yummy ….little bit spicy….. so all of you try this recipe and tell me your opinion as a comment…
