Satvik Khichdi

This khichdi is proof that satvik food is indeed for the soul. You can use vratkachawal, if your fasting ritual doesn’t permit you to eat regular rice. There is also plenty of freedom when it comes to adding veggies, serve it up with a spicy arbikikadhi and make a delicious meal out of it. This is a Sanjeev Kapoor exclusive recipe.
