Yellow lentill cooked with rice or moong daal khichdi

Yellow moong daal khichdi is one delicacy which has been underestimated and under appreciated by many . As in india  we eat "khichdi " usually when we get sick, most of the times. To avoid heavy food when sick i guess.

But me and hubby love it and relish "khichdi" usually on sundays dinner time , for more than one reason . Its light on stomuch at night , its tasty , its easy to cook .

1/2 cup moong daal washed
1/2 cup white rice washed
2 green chillies slit and chopped fine.
1/2 tsp of jeera /cuminseeds 
oil to cook just 1 tbsp 
Pure Ghee to serve

In a cooking pot fry cumin seeds followed by green chillies . do not fry for long , immedietly thrown in rice and moong daal and fry them for a minute,then add salt to taste and 2-3 cups of water to cook them.

We like our khichdi to be watery . So i keep checking water consistency when rice and lentil are cooked .If its dry then pour more water to make it thick watery . 
Re-check for salt .

Serve very hot with ghee or clarified butter , papad and hot red pepper garlic chutney . Enjoy !
