This is a traditional Rajasthani recipe that we discovered is an excellent source of protein, iron, folic acid and fibre. Its creamy consistency and mild flavours make it a good recipe to have especially in the preconception period and first trimester. But i'm sure you will enjoy it all through your pregnancy. You can even perk up this khichdi by adding some spices to it and maybe even throw in some vegetables. Serve it with curds raita or a kadhi and you have a completely balanced meal ready.

A very diff combination of khichdi but was loved by all family members to my surprise. Tarla Dalal recipes always makes me a winner of my kitchen.
