  • When one thinks of homely food, khichdi is the first option that comes to mind. A wholesome khichdi can warm your heart and make you comfortable after a long and busy day, and this sumptuous Bajra Khichdi is sure to live up to your expectations. Rajasthanis use more of millets like bajra than rice, and therefore recipes like khichdi that are typically made with rice in other parts of the country are made differently in Rajasthan. Bajra Khichdi, with its creamy consistency and mild flavours, is both comforting and satiating and makes a lovely meal when served with a cup of curds or raita. If you are looking for something more elaborate, feel free to add some spices to the tempering, or maybe even throw in some chopped veggies into the cooker along with the bajra and moong dal.

The most celebrated of all is the wheat flour churma that can be is shaped into laddus. I discovered that the more ghee you add to the churma mixture, the easier it is to shape these laddus. If you use ghee sparingly as we have done in this recipe, you will need to use a lot more pressure to shape them. You can also serve the churma crumbled in which case, you do not need to make laddus.
