Kichiri



Kichiri is one of the ultimate Indian comfort foods. When I was growing up, Bibi would make kichiri and khaghina (tomato and egg scramble) for Sunday brunch. It was one of the best meals. So, of course, I wanted to make it. I made the kichiri, but didn’t make the khagina – for some reason my mom won’t give me that recipe. I’ll have to bug her about it. Anyways, I ended up eating the kichiri with Bibi’s tomato chutney. It tasted like home.

Kichiri

Serves 3-4

1 cup basmati rice
½ cup masoor daal (red lentils) – washed and set aside
½ cup chopped onions
¼ tsp. turmeric
1 cinnamon stick
2 cloves
3 cardamom pods
2 T olive oil
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic


In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until they become soft and translucent. Add cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, cloves, ginger, garlic, and turmeric. Saute seasonings. Add rice and lentils. Add 2 1/2 cups of water. Bring to boil, turn heat to low, cover and allow rice to cook for 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy!

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
for something completely unique.
P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

I almost never write responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here "Kichiri".
And I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it appear like some of these comments look like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other places, I'd like to follow everything new you have
