BM #99 Day 6 - 

Check this simple and flavorful khichdi with Foxtail Millet.
This is my go-to recipe for any meal. Foxtail millet is the only variety that is available year round in our area and so I tend to use these millets a lot. 

At the end of the first week, here is the recap of the posts so far..
Ingredients - 

Foxtail Millet 1/2 cup
Moong Dal 1/2 cup
Assorted Vegetables (Peas, Green Beans, Carrots, Spinach, Zucchini) 2 cups
Salt, Pepper, Ginger, Green Chili Paste, Turmeric as needed
Lime/Lemon Juice as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 tsp, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Cashews few, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafotida a pinch, Curry leaves few)



Method Of Preparation -


Pressure Cooker Method - 
Wash the foxtail millet and soak for a few hours. I typically soak for 4-5 hours.

When ready to make khichdi, wash moong dal and set aside.

In a pressure cooker, prepare the seasoning. After the mustard seeds pop, add the dals, cashew, curry leaves and asafotida. 

After the dals are brown, add all the vegetables, pepper, ginger, green chili paste, turmeric and the soaked foxtail millet and moong dal.

Sprinkle salt and add about 4 cups of water.

Cook for about 10 minutes or for 2-3 hisses.

Allow the pressure to be released and remove. Squeeze in lemon juice and serve hot with ghee and papad.

Instant Pot Method - 
Wash the foxtail  millet and soak for a few hours. 

When ready to make khichdi, wash moong dal and set aside.

Power on the Instant Pot in the 'Saute' mode. Once the display says 'Hot', add oil and the rest of the seasoning.

After the mustard seeds pop, add the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the dals are brown, add all the vegetables, pepper, ginger, green chili paste, turmeric and the soaked foxtail millet and moong dal.

Sprinkle salt and add about 4 cups of water.

Cover with the lid, set it to 'Porridge' mode. Make sure it is set to the 'sealing' mode. [Set it or 10 minutes].


Let it naturally release the pressure. Squeeze lime juice before serving.
