Multigrain Khichdi
Written by Jayashree
Published on February 16, 2016

Khichdi is a popular one pot meal which is relished by all. Popularly known as pongal, this has been made since ages, but with time, different versions are available. With brown rice being used regularly in many kitchens, khichdi is  also made of it. Here is another kind of khichdi  made with brown rice. This is a multigrain  khichdi, very healthy and unique.

In today’s recipe khichdi is made using brown rice, oats,quinoa along with moong dal and a few other veggies. I have used equal quantity of all the four ingredients.  Beleive me,the use of all these ingredients have not altered the taste at all. Do make a small quantity and check for yourself. If you are searching for a quick and healthy meal, then you do need to give this a try. This is one of the dishes that I frequently make these days .
