Khichdi – Rice with lentils- A treat.

While for some, khichdi may be a food for the sick, but for me and my family it is a treat. Especially khichdi when served fresh and hot, is a bliss. Yes,I am not exaggerating here. Mind you, it should not be bland , but should be a tad spicier with some ghee generously added(dont mind the calories when you want to enjoy the taste!!) and of course the last secret is the garnishing part with the red chillies.Believe me, this does enhances the taste and flavour to the so called boring khichdi!!
