Fada ni khichdi is a wholesome one dish meal that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or any time of the day for that matter. Made with nutritious broken wheat and yellow moong dal simmered with vegetables and spices, this dish is quite wholesome and does not even require any grand accompaniments. Just serve with plain or masala curd, to make a delectable meal.

Ingredients

Method
  1. Wash and soak the broken wheat and moong dal in enough water for at least 15 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
  2. Heat the ghee in a pressure cooker and add the cinnamon, cloves, cumin seeds and asafoetida.
  3. When the seeds crackle, add all the remaining ingredients including the moong dal and broken wheat and sauté on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add 4 cups of hot water, mix well and pressure cook for 3 to 4 whistles.
  5. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  6. Stir the khichdi vigorously using a spoon, adding a little hot water if required, so that the dal and the broken wheat are mixed well.
  7. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with fresh curds.

Last winter I passed by a group of Gujrati speaking ladies , one of whom was saying " Fada ni khichdi kari hathi. Bahu fine laagi.. " I'd never heard the name nor did I know what the main ingredient was . A general (superficial) google search later, I initially dismissed it as a fanciful name for the 'namkeen dalia ", I'd been making. Out of curiosity for Tarla aunty's version and of course having successfully attempted some of her recipes earlier, I checked the recipe on this website and noticed that the ingredients were considerably different although the method was probably simpler than what I was doing. What I was cooking was wholesome but the gujarati version as interpreted by Tarla aunty was exactly what you could call a complete one dish meal with the nutrients also intact. If I have the vegetables required, then this is what I cook on the spur. The best part is that I still haven't tasted it made by an authentic gujarati or even at a restaurant. All the same it tasted good each time I made it and my family agrees. Thank-you Tarla aunty!
