BM #99 Day 23 - 

This is a fast and easy kind of a khichdi. I had made this for a religious event and it was well appreciated. I thought wheat rava was a good substitute for rice. In many religious events, the elders tend to avoid rice and hence this came in handy.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Rava 1 cup
Moong Dal 3/4 cup
Salt and Turmeric as needed
Mixed Vegetables (I used Carrot and Peas)
Grated ginger 1 tsp
Whole Black Peppers 7-8
Seasoning (Ghee 2 tsp, Curry leaves few, Cashews few, Asafoetida couple pinches)

Method Of Preparation -

Wash moong dal and set aside.

Power the Instant Pot, making sure the inner pot is in place. Set it to 'Saute' mode.

Once it indicates that the pot is hot, add ghee and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. 

After the cashews are golden brown, add the grated ginger and pepper corns. Add the mixed vegetables. Saute for a couple minutes.

Add in the washed and drained moong dal and saute for a couple of minutes.

Add the wheat rava, salt and turmeric. Mix well adding about 5-6 cups of water.

Put the Instant Pot lid on. Cancel the 'Saute' mode. Set it to 'Manual' or 'Pressure Cook' mode for 8 minutes.

Allow it to naturally release the pressure.

Open the Instant Pot lid, if the consistency needs adjustment, put the Instant Pot on 'Saute' mode and let it simmer for a few minutes. Unplug the Instant Pot.

Serve it hot with any chutney of your choice or any tangy gravy like thisBendakaya GojjuPineapple Gojju, or Strawberry Gojju.
