Wash dal & rice thoroughly. Add water, turmeric powder, bay leaves & heat it in thick pan. Do not cover the pan with lid. Once rice & dal is semi cooked start preparing for seasoning.
For Seasoning :
Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. Wait until it splutters. Now add green chilli, finely cut tomatoes, little turmeric powder. Saute for 2 mimutes.
Now add this seasoning to half cooked khichdi. Add little more water if required. Now add cumin powder & a dollop of ghee, also sugar. Let it boil for sometime.
Serve it hot with papad, achar & curd.
This is absolutely soothing for the digestive tract especially during monsoon & yummy too for all age groups.
