What is Marathi Khichdi made of?
This marathi khichdi is cooked with rice and yellow dal lentils, and it has only the bare minimum of spices and flavorings to taste.

How to cook khichri?
Check the consistency of the khichri after it has been cooked. If the sauce is too thick, add a little boiling water and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Continue to cook for a few more minutes if you want a thinner consistency. You may also serve it with raita or a salad of your choice.
