Brown Rice khichdi

For the forth day of the Blogging Marathon, I decided on 'Brown Rice Kichdi'.
Its a very easy and simple dish made with brown rice and moong daal. Its again tempered with some spices.
I make it this way when ever I am bored with plain brown rice. Its made just as I make it with white rice.
I don't add any veggies, cos I like it this way. But you are most welcome to add veggies to make it more interesting.
I like it to this with any curry or even with just pickle. It tastes just as yummy!


1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup pesar pappu, split moong daal

1 small onion
2 green chillies
1/2 tbsp oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp jeera
few black peppercorns
pinch of hing, inguva, asfoetida
1 tsp ginger grated
few curry leaves


Dry roast the moong daal. Wash it and cook it with some water and salt.
When the daal gets cooked, add the cooked brown rice, onions and green chillies.
Heat oil and do the tempering.
Add musturd and jeera, let them splutter.
Add the peppercorns.
Add the hing and ginger along with curry leaves.
Add this to the rice with moong daal. Mix well and add salt to taste.
Serve warm with any curry or with avakaya or mango pickle.
