This Oats and vegetable kichdi is very simple to make and is a one pot recipe.  It can be customized to your preference be it spice or the vegetables added. In all it is a healthy, delicious and simple meal for the days you want a simple yet yummy meal.

I usually make this for dinner on the days our lunch is heavy or make it as a quick meal after a shopping trip as it gets ready in a jiffy.

I use Moong dal mostly but this time I have used half of Moong dal and half of Tuvar dal and it turned out yummy. But since I used Tuvar dal I had to pre cook the dal in a vessel for 10 minutes and then transfer to cooker along with all other ingredients. If you want a fully one pot recipe, then use only Moong dal.

Notes:

  1. Any vegetables of your choice can be added.
  2. This kichdi can be prepared by using just Moong dal or only Tuvar . If using only Moong dal the dal can be put along with the oats directly into the cooker.
  3. If using only Tuvar dal precook dal for 10 minutes before adding it with other ingredients.
  4. The ghee enhances the taste of the kichdi, so try not to skip this step.
