Notes

NOTE-
1-The preferred consistency of this khichdi is soft like porridge.
2- Sama’s tendency is to absorb the moisture quickly,so If it thickens after some time,you can add some hot water and reheat the khichdi for a minute to adjust the consistency.
3- Fried and crushed cashews can also be added .
