Toor Dal Khichidi ( Split Pigeon Pea And Rice Meal)
I have a weakness for khichidi or basically the rice and lentil combo. It is this love that attracts me to a pongal or any forms of khichidi. My home version is a simple, non-spiced moong dal and rice preparation by my mom. It is very bland hence often paired with a curry. But this khichidi is quite different. I had it for the first time during my stay in Dharwad a district of Northern Karnataka. My boss told me it was the Rajasthani masala khichidi though I never found a recipe like this when I searched for Rajasthani khichidis. I tried to do this from the vague memory I had of how this khichidi tasted 7 years ago. I am still not happy and will repeat to get the exact flavour on my mind. Hope that helps till then you can try this version of khichidi. I find it a cross breed between sambar rice and khichidi how about you?
