Simple and Tasty Khichdi
Khichdi is a comfort food, that contains rice and lentils that is cooked till mushy. Anytime when I don't feel like cooking anything, or even eating anything very spicy, I cook Khichdi and have it with Kadhi.
Khichdi can be made spicy by adding whole spices to it, but I usually make it without adding any spice. I think it tastes better.
At my house, whenever anyone is sick, we make khichdi. It is a tasty, light and nutritional dish, which everyone enjoys. This recipe is submitted to "Comfort Food For Illness Event" at http://recipecenterforall.blogspot.com/2009/04/announcing-comfort-food-for-illness.html
Here is the recipe for Saadi(Plain) Gujarati Khichdi.

1 cup rice (preferably not Baasmati)
Salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
5 cups water.
Method: Wash and drain the rice and daal thoroughly. Combine with 5 cups of water, salt and turmeric powder. Pressure cook for 4-5 whistles.
Pour a teaspoon of ghee on warm khichdi and serve with Gujarati Kadhi and Ringana no Olo.
