Instant Khichdi mix- a ready to cook mix of rice, lentil, spices and tempering-just add water and cook
Khichdi is a comfort food of Indian cuisine,its healthy and easy to cook.It don’t take much time to cook and is fuss free.. Khichdi can be made with almost all the Indian lentils,every one have their own preferences and method of cooking ,some like it simple and some prefer to add vegetables in it. I usually prefer Tuvar daal Khichdi and Gujarati Vaghareli khichdi then the others khichdis.
Now there are so many packed food and ready to eat food packets are easily available in the market. So many variety and so attractive packaging and tag lines . But we are not sure about the quality of the ingredients added in those packets and the freshness of that food inside.
The working women who doesn’t have much time to prepare fresh breakfast,lunch and dinner ,students who are going away from the house for their further studies often crave for home made food ,no body can enjoy hotel or hostel food every day so they end up buying such ready to cook packed food. When people go for tours due to their work also need such type of easy to cook food packets .
So Instead of buying expensive and not so healthy ready food packets from the markets it is a good idea to make such food items at home .They are quite easy to make and very healthy and hygienic.
