As we all know Khichadi is not only healthy but ultimate comfort food, however this moong dal khichadi is healthier among all khichadi recipes. Moong dal khichdi is prepared with rice and moong dal with skin. When you do not have time to prepare any elaborate meals, but want something healthy, then this moong dal Khichdi is a great option. I usually prepare it with tur dal or moong dal or masoor dal or a combination of any of the mentioned two dals.
Kadhi is best accompaniment with moong dal khichadi, however if you don’t have time to prepare a kadhi, you can just serve this with raita/curds and papad, and there you have a sumptuous dinner on the table!
