Ankurit Beejon Ki Khichdi - अंकुरित बीजों की खिचड़ी (Mixed Spicy rice with Sprouts)

Hello friends,

Here is a healthy recipe. We, as a family love khichdi, but this is the first time I tried using sprouted seeds, a combination of few of them and guess what, it was super yummy !!! So, without further delay, here is the recipe.

Ankurit Beejon Ki Khichdi - अंकुरित बीजों की खिचड़ी (Mixed Spicy rice with Sprouts)

Rice - 1.5 cups, washed and drained
Onion - 1 cup
Tomato - 1 cup
Adrakh (Ginger) - 1 inch piece, grated

  • Take a cooker on stove and add oil to it.
  • Add paanch fodan, all whole masalas and let the seeds splutter and a nice aroma come from it.
  • Add onion, ginger and let them fry till onion is translucent.
  • Add all  masala powders and let it fry for a minute.
  • Add tomatoes and fry for another 2 min.

  • Remove the lid off, add ghee, mix well and cover the lid for 5 min. before serving it.

Serve this for lunch or dinner alike with a small bowl of dahi (yogurt), your favorite spicy pickle and some crunchy-munchy papad/chips.
