  • Wash the dals well & soak them overnight. If overnight soaking is not possible, they should at least soak for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Soak rice 30 minutes before cooking dals.
  • Pressure-cook dals & rice for 20 minutes. If you’ve soaked them overnight, the cooking time will be reduced to 5 minutes, i.e. 15 minutes is enough to pressure-cook.

Make sure that you don’t have too much water added to the cooker. Only glass or two should be used for pressure-cooking.

  • Take a thick bottom pan. Heat oil and add cardamom, cinnamon, cloves & onions once the oil is heated.
  • Saute the onion till it starts giving a light brown color. Next, add ginger-garlic paste and sauté till the raw aroma goes away. Add carrot and peas now.

  • Stir fry the mixture for a minute. Add chopped tomatoes & green chili. Saute well. (You may use tomato puree to reduce cooking time)
  • If the consistency of the mixture is too thick, add some water to adjust the consistency.
  • Now add red chili powder, garam masala powder, curd, salt & mix well.
  • Add chopped mint & coriander leaves to the Khichda pot. Add lemon juice for twisted taste.
  • Once the gravy is ready, add the cooked dal & rice mixture to the pan & sprinkle it with chat masala.
  • Add around 400 ml of water and mix the contents well. Allow it to cook for 10 to 15 minutes on low flame by stirring in between to avoid the formation of lumps.
  • Serve the piping hot veg dal Khichda by garnishing it with mint leaves, fried onions & a few drops of tamarind juice.
