Electric induction cooktop: khichdi recipe
Here is the recipe of khichdi – your favourite comfort food – that you can cook using an induction cooktop:
STEP 1: Wash the rice and moong dal together until water runs clear. Soak the rice and dal in 3-4 cups of water for around 20-30 minutes, depending on the quantity. Now, drain the water.
STEP 2: Place a pan on the induction stove and heat a tbsp of ghee. Set the temperature to low or medium and add one tsp cumin seeds. Add whole garam masalas – cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, and cloves, when the cumin seeds crackle. Be very careful as the cloves tend to pop.
STEP 3: Add the washed dal and rice to the pan and cook for a minute or two. Now add turmeric powder along with five-six cups of water, depending on the quantity.
STEP 4: Now set the temperature to low, cover the pan with a lid, and let it boil. After 15-20 minutes, check the pan and add more water ( if needed).
STEP 5: Cook for some time until the dal and rice have softened and mixed completely. Keep the pan covered for a few minutes.
STEP 6: Add ghee, garnish with some coriander leaves, and serve hot with papad or tamarind chutney.
